Correct!!!

According to a Foro Empresa study 33% of consumers -- almost 50% more than any other category -- want companies to report on their corporate sustainability performance.

What does this mean for corporate reporting strategy?

One – Companies need do a great and assured/verified sustainability report, making it ultra-accessible to their own consumers or those of their clients.

Two – Companies need to report far and wide, involving stakeholders from the outset to ensure they feel connected to a company’s sustainability performance!

GRI Workshop

ES Global es una organización pionera en América Latina especializada en el tema, certificada por el GRI para impartir este curso.

Y el día llegó

Estamos estrenando nuevos estándares  que complementan y enriquecen la Guía para la elaboración de Reporte de Sustentabilidad del GRI, la muy anunciada guía G4. En la  reciente  presentación  de estas nuevas directrices realizada  el pasado 21-24 de Mayo en Amsterdam, el GRI anuncio que los reportes bajo estas nuevas directrices pueden tener un mejor enfoque sobre los temas más relevantes para cada organización y sean mucho más claros y simples para los grupos de interés.

Los cambios más relevantes son:

  • Un mayor enfoque en la materialidad. Esto ayudará a una mayor transparencia.
  • Niveles de aplicación. Dejamos atrás los niveles de aplicación A, B y C de los reportes. Ahora tenemos dos opciones para cumplir con los lineamientos GRI. La opción “núcleo” y la opción “integral”. Los reportes de “conformidad” con la opción “núcleo” deben contener los elementos esenciales de un reporte de sustentabilidad y al menos un indicador de sus aspectos materiales; la opción “integral”, construida sobre la base “núcleo”, debe contener declaraciones adicionales de estrategia, gobernanza, ética e integridad, así como todos los indicadores de sus aspectos materiales.
  • Mayor relevancia del Enfoque de Gestión. Se formaliza una mayor participación y compromiso de las estructuras y procesos de gobernanza.
  • Integración de la cadena de valor. Implementa una mayor expansión de los límites o cobertura del reporte.

Y otros cambios que en el seguimiento de la guía podremos descubrir. Pero no se preocupen mucho, hay tiempo para ocuparse de entender bien estos cambios, de probarlos en su organización, de implementarlos en su sistema de gestión y salir con un excelente reporte G4 en el 2015!


Beneficios:

  • Conocimiento específico de los nuevos lineamientos de la Guía GRI G4.

How many worlds do you use?

August 20 was Earth Overshoot Day 2013, the approximate date humanity’s ecological resource consumption exceeded what Earth can renew this year. A mere 34 weeks into 2013, we demanded a level of ecological resources and services — from food and raw materials to sequestering carbon dioxide from fossil fuel emissions — equivalent to what Earth can regenerate for all of 2013.

For the rest of the year, we are operating in ecological overshoot. We will maintain our ecological deficit by depleting stocks of fish, trees and other resources, and accumulating waste such as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and oceans. As our level of consumption, or “spending,” grows, the interest we are paying on this mounting ecological debt — shrinking forests, biodiversity loss, fisheries collapse, food shortages, degraded land productivity and the build-up of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and oceans — not only burdens the environment but also undermines our economies. Climate change — a result of greenhouse gases being emitted faster than they can be absorbed by forests and oceans — is the most widespread impact of ecological overspending.

Earth Overshoot Day is an annual observance meant to bring attention to the risks of humanity’s growing ecological deficit. Making better choices will better ensure that we can reverse trends and move toward a sustainable future; measuring how much nature we have, how much we use and how much we need will help us make those choices. This year, due in no small part to the critical support of our partners and supporters, that message resonated around the world.

In 2003, Global Footprint Network, a nonprofit organization, was established to enable a sustainable future where all people have the opportunity to live satisfying lives within the means of one planet.  The Network focuses on measuring human impact on the Earth so we can make more informed choices thus developed the Ecological Footprint — a resource accounting tool that measures how much nature we have, how much we use, and who uses what.
