Event Details

Launched in 2017, the GRI Reporters’ Summit was created as a learning symposium for practitioners to increase knowledge sharing and collaboration among North American-based reporting organizations. The Summit is not a conference – we aim to provide specific, tangible guidance and tools to allow reporting organizations to improve their reporting and better understand trends in sustainability topic disclosure.

We want to keep things fresh and therefore in 2020 will have two half-day sessions for individuals to choose from: 6 February 2020 in Phoenix (to coincide with GreenBiz20) and 16 June 2020 in Washington, DC. We hope that these shorter, more local events will allow greater flexibility for attendees’ busy schedules.

Join us in Arizona, for the Summit West to boost your knowledge and connections in the fast-moving sustainability reporting field. Learn more about new the GRI Standards on Tax and Waste & Cicularity, supply chain disclosures and changes in policy and regulation.  

The Summit is specifically for professionals who are responsible for sustainability reporting within their organization. Due to limited room size, only consultants that are members of our GRI Community membership program may attend.
