  • 1. Melbourne, March 2012
  • 2. Introducing G4:how does a multi-stakeholder network create globally applicable Sustainability Reporting Guidelines? Dr. Nelmara Arbex, Deputy Chief Executive, “Guidance, Support and Innovations area”
  • 3. Global Reporting Initiative
  • 4. GRI: a network organization *Business Academia *Civil Society *Mediating institutions Governments *Labor *Financial markets
  • 5. GRI: a network organization• Governance Bodies – BoD, SC, TAC• Secretariat, Focal Points and Ambassadors• Organizational Stakeholders• Governmental Advisory Group• Training partners and training participants• Project sponsors• Content development partners• Strategic Alliances
  • 6. The sustainability challenge How can business be profitable andcontribute to solutions at the same time?
  • 7. Managing change “What you can’t measure, you cannot manage. What you can’t manage, you cannot change.” Peter Drucker Writer, professor and management consultant
  • 8. GRISustainability ReportingGuidelines and the SectorSupplements!
  • 9. The G3 Guidelines • Reliability, Accuracy, Timeliness, Clarity, Comparability, Balance • Materiality • Stakeholder Inclusiveness • Completeness • Sustainability ContextProfile
  • 10. What is sustainability reporting? • Economic, environmental, social performance information and governance aspects related to sustainability • Multi-stakeholders focused • Continuous improvement
  • 11. How the GRI network does it?Through a “Due Process” ! SC + WG TAC BoD BoD Public Public Comment Comment Period Period
  • 12. Are companies using GRI guidance?
  • 13. Different sources• 2010 - Bloomberg projects that over 4500 reports are “based” on GRI Guidelines• 2011 - KPMG last “International Survey on Corporate Sustainability Reporting” : 80% of G250 and 69% of N100 (3400 companies) use the GRI Guidelines
  • 14. GRI reports identified by GRI - 1999-2011* 2500 2000 1913 1515 1500 1430 1121 1000 715 524 500 378 280 148 166 126 11 44 0 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011*Sustainability Disclosure Database data from 1 February 2012
  • 15. Identified Integrated GRI Reporting* 2010 & 2011 2010 2011 21% 13% Not integrated Integrated 87% 79% n = 1913 n = 2267*Sustainability Disclosure Database data from 1 February 2012
  • 16. If you would take a picture ofcurrent sustainability reporting field, you would see…
  • 17. Future reporting context• Demand for sustainability performance information is increasing – also from regulators• Metrics is not coherent/harmonized• Lack of precision - leads to high reporting and verification costs• Most reports lack material focus• Information in pdf of other unfriendly formats• “Integrated Reporting” is a trend
  • 18. G4 Objectives• To be user-friendly for beginners and experienced reporters• To improve the technical quality, clearer definitions• To align with other reporting frameworks• To offer guidance which leads to material reports (“materiality”)• To offer guidance on how to link the sustainability reporting and Integrated Report - aligned with IIRC• To provide support to improve data search (XBRL)

  • 24. Main findings1. Which elements stakeholders would like to see covered as a minimum in a sustainability report Q10 (1714)2. GRI should define and “recommend” a set of topics and indicators per sector - Q16 (1715), Q17 (1407), Q13 (879)3. GRI G4 should offer guidance on how to link sustainability reporting and IR - Q20 (1693)4. Topics – top 6: Business Ethics, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Eco-Innovation, Life Cycle Assessment, Water, Biodiversity, - Q22 (1683)
  • 25. Main findings Other important highlights1. “minimum requirements for a GRI report” - coherence throughout the stakeholder groups and regions (strategy overview, material impacts, risks, material indicators) with small divergence – Q10. This results will help shaping G4 Application Levels.2. The survey attracted an important number ofopinion makers. E.g. from labor: AFL-CIO, from northAmerica; Council of Global Unions, ITF, TUAC-OECDfrom Europe
