Securing the Future: A G4 Pioneer Case Study
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines are the most widely used comprehensive sustainability standard in the world. This type of sustainability report conveys disclosures on an organization’s most critical impacts (positive and negative) on the environment, society, and the economy. The fourth generation of these Guidelines (G4) was launched in May 2013 with the goal to make robust and purposeful sustainability reporting standard practice.
Symantec was an early pioneer of the new G4 guidelines. In a recent publication, Symantec's Corporate Responsibility's Manager, Corporate Responsibility Debra McLaughlin discusses the company’s experience with implementing the G4 reporting criteria and its focus on materiality analysis.
