Reporting on What Matters: External Stakeholder Engagement and Materiality for Sustainability
Cutting-edge, Northwest companies are leading the way in corporate sustainability. When it comes to sustainability reporting, though, it can be difficult to know where to start. Organizations like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), CDP and Bloomberg have placed strong emphasis on engaging stakeholders to determine sustainability topics that are material – or most impactful – to businesses. The process is vital for both sustainability reporting and sustainability program management in general.
- When: Wednesday, September 29th from 7:30AM – 10:00AM
- Where: EPA Region 10 office, 1200 6th Ave, Seattle WA (instructions to enter building to follow)
- Cost: Free and includes coffee and light snacks

We would like to invite you to participate in a workshop focused on how to effectively engage your stakeholders on sustainability and determine materiality in order to define report content and deliver business value. This morning workshop serves as a follow-up to the “Sustainability Reporting through GRI” workshop held at Virginia Mason Hospital last fall.
There are two events planned. The first one on July 15th focuses on internal audiences, the second one on September 29th focuses on external audiences. Priority will be given to those attending both events. This registration is for September 29th. To regester for the July 15th event, please visit July 15th Registration Page.
