About the Event

Explore the new GRI Standards with the experts

GRI and Fuji Xerox invite you to join the GRI Standards Launch Event in Hong Kong on 24 November 2016. Whether you’re just starting out reporting for the first time, or you’re a seasoned reporter, this event is designed to give you an interactive, detailed overview of the very latest development in sustainability reporting.

You’ll be guided through the new GRI Standards, gaining an excellent oversight on the changes from the current version, the GRI G4 Guidelines. You’ll also have ample opportunity to ask questions to the experts who have been instrumental in developing the Standards, and to network with fellow peers, exchanging knowledge with those being at the forefront of developments in the reporting landscape. 

In the afternoon program, there will be a discussion by key local stakeholders and experts at the forefront of developments in the reporting landscape on how the GRI Standards will improve sustainable buisiness decisions.
