Reporting on sustainability issues is key to understand and communicate a company’s impact on critical sustainability issues such as human rights, labour rights or climate change. Thanks to various standards, sustainability reports have become very structured and immensely helpful instruments not only to communicate on sustainability issues but also to steer sustainability efforts and strategies.

In this Sharing & Learning Lunch participants will get an overview on how to develop a sustainability report along GRI and the UN Global Compact 10 Principles (COP) and how the materiality process can have positive strategic implications in managing sustainability issues. Elgin Brunner (BSD Consulting) and Stephanie Ossenbach (dormakaba) will share their broad knowledge and experience and discuss with the participants.
