GRI: Strengthening services for effective ESG reporting
Chief Business Development Officer is GRI’s latest senior addition
Mirjam Groten joins GRI as Chief Business Development Officer on 1 September. Mirjam will be responsible for services supporting organizations to disclose their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and prepare sustainability reports. This includes the membership program – the GRI Community – and a suite of programs including reporter training and leadership groups.
Moving from her previous role as Business Development Director of Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand, Mirjam brings a wealth of experience from commercially focused strategic management roles in both the not-for-profit and private sector.
As disclosure of ESG information becomes increasingly important for businesses, this appointment reflects GRI’s commitment to improving and strengthening its support to companies.
Welcoming Mirjam’s appointment, GRI Chief Executive Tim Mohin said:
“I am delighted with the appointment of Mirjam Groten. She will strengthen GRI’s ability to engage with organizations and help them improve their sustainability disclosures. Mirjam’s addition further adds to the skillset of our executive team, following the recent addition of Marco van der Ree to oversee fundraising.”
Mirjam Groten added:
“This is a very exciting time to be joining GRI as sustainability disclosure is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ for businesses, it has become an imperative and makes sense from every aspect.
I’m looking forward to help strengthening GRI’s work as the global lead on efficient and effective ESG reporting, which support businesses through greater transparency and accountability, contributing to sustainable development.”
