Event description

Description

Join GRI and the Global Compact Network Australia for a half-day workshop to introduce new global guidance on business reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The workshop will also explore another topical sustainability issue for Australian businesses – modern slavery reporting.

In the workshop, we will introduce the new publication "Business Reporting on the SDGs: An Analysis of the Goals and Targets", which has been developed by GRI and the UN Global Compact. The publication represents the first step towards comparable and effective corporate reporting on the Global Goals.

We will also discuss the role of sustainability reporting in advancing the SDGs and the challenges associated with monitoring and reporting a company's contribution to the Goals.

Finally, the workshop will explore modern slavery reporting, including global developments and current reporting practices, and discuss challenges and opportunities particularly in light of the Australian Government’s proposed reporting requirements.

Speakers:
Juliette Gaussem, Senior Manager Guidance & Practice, GRI
Alice Cope, Executive Director, Global Compact Network Australia

The event is by invitation, with preference given to GRI GOLD Community and Global Compact Network Australia members.


Due to limited seating capacity, we ask that only one representative per organization attends the workshop.
