Event Details


GRI Regional Hub China organizes a series of meetings across the Greater China Region on an annual basis. The meetings aim to bring sustainability reporting practitioners and key stakeholders together to learn about the latest developments in sustainability reporting as well as sharing and learning experiences and insights from peer organizations.


The GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards, which were launched in October 2016, have been continuously developed over 20 years and represent global best practice for reporting on economic, environmental, social and governance issues. The modular structure of the Standards makes it possible for GRI to continue to be the most trusted and up to date sustainability reporting standard. This year GRI has officially launched the updated standards GRI: 303 Water and Effluents 2018 and GRI: 403 Occupational Health and Safety 2018. This year’s annual meetings will present key updates of these two standards in detail, and how companies could better manage and report on their Water and OHS related impacts.


Meanwhile, regional policy requirements and legislation on corporate ESG information disclosure has become more demanding, particularly since this year. The requirement for businesses to disclose environmental information such as quantity of emission to air, water and land, is becoming a greater challenge to businesses. As such, the level of control to ESG information must also be enhanced so as to generate robust environmental metrics to avoid misstatement risks. The meeting will also bring together data users such as investors, analysts, market regulators, and etc. to discuss innovation in improving the quality of disclosures, such as digital reporting for more accurate, comparable, and consistent corporate sustainability information disclosures.
