The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) will launch two new studies showing that the global economy is set to become radically more transparent over the next decade, as businesses and governments seek to rebuild trust and confidence in the wake of the economic crisis of the last two years.
The studies, titled “The Transparent Economy” and “Carrots and Sticks,” investigate the latest developments in sustainability reporting in the regulatory field and in relation to society’s recent challenges. Both documents will be released during the 2010 Amsterdam Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency, which will take place on 26-28 May, 2010. The Amsterdam Conference is the world’s largest sustainability reporting event.
