Event description


Register for the GRI GOLD Roundtables Switzerland - Module 2: Materiality & Boundaries and join us in Basel on 6th September 2018!

Dear All,

We are thrilled to invite you to our second Swiss GRI GOLD Roundtable on Materiality and Boundary which will be held on 6th September in Basel.

The concept of materiality and boundary is central to sustainability reporting. The importance of materiality and boundary in the reporting process is underscored in GRI Standards. Join this Roundtable to understand how is materiality changing companies' reporting and management and to learn more about the aspects of the process to define the report content that are the most challenging for reporting organizations ( for example, impacts, boundary, stakeholder engagement, prioritization, the link between the material topics identified by the company and the GRI topics, and validation). Also, you can join this Roundtable to:

• Exchange local best practices and receive feedback from peers to refine your approach via group exercises and local case studies

• Reflect with peers in your region on different sustainability reporting approaches

• Increase your understanding of sustainability reporting principles and processes

• Explore the key areas that impact on sustainability reporting with GRI and peers from a variety of fields

• Showcase that you are a GRI GOLD Roundtables participant to your local network
