The following paper includes:
1) Analysis of the rising trend of sustainability reporting
2) The argument for GRI as the leading framework for sustainability reporting in the U.S.
3) Policy proposal for including GRI projects in business school curriculum
The GRI projects are proposed specifically for the Dominican University of California's Green MBA in Sustainable Enterprise program in San Rafael, CA, USA. However, similar or identical projects can be administered at any business school or sustainability program.
The key point is that there is both a need and an opportunity to increase awareness, education, and implementation of sustainability reporting in the United States. As a global economic leader, we are abysmally lagging in developing integrated sustainability strategies for businesses. To embark on this journey, we must first measure and report on social and environmental performance.
In the coming weeks, I will be creating a condensed version of this report for broader implementation of the policy. Please let me know if you are interested in receiving this link. Leave your email in the Comments section or message me through LinkedIn or at firstname.lastname@example.org
