UNCTAD-Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Introductory Workshop on Sustainability Reporting Framework

02 November 2015
Room XXV, E. building, Palais des Nations
, Switzerland


Governments and regulatory frameworks are playing an increasingly important role in promoting corporate transparency and accountability.

In this introductory workshop, participants learned how sustainability reports contribute to transparency and accountability and how organizations preparing them are responding to increasing regulatory requirements.

Participants discovered (GRI) Global Reporting Initiative, and how G4 (GRI's Reporting Guidelines) can help organizations to manage their economic, environmental and governance impacts responsibly.

This UNCTAD-GRI Workshop was followed by the Annual accounting workshop (3 November 2015) and the Intergovernmental Working Group of Experts on International Standards of Accounting and Reporting - ISAR (4-6 November 2015)

The workshop was targeted to governments officials, international organization representatives, accounting professional bodies and practitioners and ISAR participants.


In 2008 GRI and UNCTAD signed a Memorandum of Understanding. The Program of Cooperation aims to promote greater understanding of, and participation in, the processes that set internationally recognized sustainability reporting standards.

The goal is to foster sustainable development in developing countries and transition economies, and to facilitate investment and business linkages.
