Informational Webinar – Beyond SSPPs: GRI Sustainability Reporting for Federal Agencies

Join in and learn about Sustainability Reporting for federal agencies and how the GRI format can help! Our IC has a sustainability report and our agency, DHHS is currently working on their first report based on the Sustainability Strategic Performance Plan (SSPP) from 2010.

Having our own report allows us to set metrics and goals that not only support our mission but encourages our employees to actively participate in where their institute is headed. It also allows us to venture beyond environmental-only reporting and set goals specific to the needs of our people, our community, and our institute. The Global Reporting Initiative’s format is in depth and straightforward. Their system of reporting allows you to choose how best to report for your institution.

Because we are not in DC we are subject to different state and local regulations. However, EO 13514 still impacts our everyday choices. These and other issues make it important for you to become more aware while considering a sustainability report for your company or institute as well. This system will also help break down ‘silos’ and build relationships among groups that usually do not interact helping to make a more cohesive and collaborative group.

Join us to hear from the nation’s federal agency sustainability leaders and learn how they use the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework for sustainability reporting to enhance and expand their existing Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) efforts.

Participants will gain an overview of GRI reporting standards, explore the linkages (and gaps) between SSPPs and GRI reporting, and hear first-hand from the federal agency early adopters of the GRI reporting framework.

Representatives from the U.S. Army, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences will share how they use the GRI reporting standards to report their social, economic and environmental performance to their stakeholders.
