GRI International Organizational Stakeholder Event

Thursday 25 November - Rome

"Towards a Sustainable and Transparent Economy"

Registration is only possible for the morning session, the afternoon session is now full. If you register after 22nd November you must email Nikki McKean-Wood,

There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within the Organizational Stakeholder network.  Enel, who have been an OS since 2007 and also run, were keen to host an OS event which brings together this knowledge-network from around the world.

We have put together an agenda for a 1-day event in Rome that is unmissable for all OS who want to discuss the future of transparency and sustainability, both in a broad and practical sense. 

In the morning session, you will hear about trends in sustainability, transparency and reporting from Nelmara Arbex, Toni Muzi Falconi and John Elkington.  As well as an opportunity to put your questions to the panel, this forms food for the thought for the afternoon session, which looks in detail at one trend.

Integrated reporting is much talked about, in particular with the recent launch of the International Integrated Reporting Committee.  This is your chance to have an in-depth discussion with two Organizational Stakeholders who are already producing integrated reports; Rabobank and Novo Nordisk. You can hear about their learning points, challenges and advantages or disadvantages of integrated reporting. 

In addition to the OS exclusive Integrated Reporting in Practice session, there is also a lunch and aperitivo providing an opportunity to discuss other topics and find common interests and experience.

nb Spanish and Italian translation will be provided for this event
