GRI celebrates new era for non-financial information disclosure in the EU

The European Parliament adopted the long-awaited directive on the disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by certain large companies.

 

"This vote is a victory for transparency and this is a great day for the future of sustainability reporting," said Teresa Fogelberg, Deputy Chief Executive, Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). This agreement demonstrates the EU’s strong commitment to corporate transparency and sustainability -- supporting smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, and paving the way for a sustainable global economy."

 

Exactly one year from the launch of the legislative proposal by European Commissioner for Internal Market and Services, Michel Barnier, and after extensive negotiations between the three European bodies, today’s vote was the last step in the process. The directive, which adopts a report or explain approach, introduces measures that will strengthen the transparency and accountability of an estimated 6000 companies in the EU.
