GRI Is Looking for Accomplished Nominees for Its Governance Bodies

Jun 13, 2018 2:00 PM ET

GRI’s mission to empower decisions that create social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone, can only be fulfilled if everyone is represented. That is why multi-stakeholder representation is at the core of all of our activities, and our governance. And to make this inclusiveness more tangible, there is a yearly opportunity for different constituencies to become part of our governance bodies. 

Members of these governance bodies are experts in their field who are also deeply interested in shaping the future of sustainability reporting. 

We are currently seeking senior individuals of integrity and high reputation to join the committees listed below for a term of 3 years, from 1 January 2019. The nomination period will be open from 4 June to 3 August 2018.   

The dedicated members in GRI’s governance bodies provide counsel and guidance to help GRI carry out its mission. For the past two decades, our governance bodies have helped us pioneer sustainability reporting, and to develop the world’s most trusted and widely used reporting guidance. More recently, GRI transitioned into a global standards-setting organization, launching its first set of Sustainability Reporting Standards. GRI’s governance bodies were instrumental in this endeavor.
