In September 2016, GRI embarked on a research project with DFID to review the relationship between corporate sustainability reporting and business action on poverty alleviation, with the aim of identifying how improved data and reporting can optimize business’s contribution to ending poverty. The role of business is essential, and we see corporate sustainability reporting a significant driver of positive social change.
As a follow-up from that report, GRI has now published a discussion paper with practical recommendations for companies to engage better with poverty alleviation as part of their business. Here you can see four areas in which business can help to alleviate poverty through its activities and relationships. Click here to view the full discussion paper Corporate Reporting on Poverty.
