    Event Description

    Because of the COVID-19 pandemic we will tranform the summit into a virtual event.  We will add the link to the virtual summit website as soon as possible.

    Launched in 2017, the GRI Reporters’ Summit was created as a learning symposium for practitioners to increase knowledge sharing and collaboration among North American-based reporting organizations. The Summit is not a conference – we aim to provide specific, tangible guidance and tools to allow reporting organizations to improve their reporting and better understand trends in sustainability topic disclosure.

    We want to keep things fresh and therefore in 2020 we will have two half-day sessions for individuals to choose from: 6 February 2020 in Phoenix (to coincide with GreenBiz20) and 16 June 2020 in Washington, DC. We hope that these shorter, more local events will allow greater flexibility for attendees’ busy schedules.

    Join us in Washington, DC, for the East Summit on 16 June to boost your knowledge and connections in the fast-moving sustainability reporting field. Learn more about the new GRI Standards on Tax and Waste. We will also cover supply chain disclosures and changes in policy and regulation.

    The Summit is specifically for professionals who are responsible for sustainability reporting within their organization. Due to limited room size, consultants and acadmics may join if they are members of our GRI Community membership program.
