We highlight the impact of key initiatives, such as the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) and the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), Disclosure Standards, and explore how they are affecting businesses worldwide, while also taking stock of the GRI Standards’ position in the reporting landscape as the oldest and most widely used voluntary reporting framework.

    Bastian Buck - Chief Standards Officer at GRI, Diego Herrera - Financial Markets Lead Specialist at the Inter-American Development Bank, Alyssa Rade - Chief Sustainability Officer at Sustain.Life and Maximilian Müller - Professor at the University of Cologne, shed light on how companies in different regions are adapting to these changes, with a particular focus on the role of digital platforms and the challenges and opportunities in the ESG data landscape.
