Sustainability reporting standards organisation GRI is to launch a research framework with the IFRS Foundation in which companies can discuss and collaborate on meeting their ESG disclosure obligations.
The Sustainability Innovation Lab (SIL) will be based in Singapore in the heart of Asia where 81 per cent of reporting companies do so in alignment with the GRI, the organisation said. Its own standards are in line with those of the IFRS Foundation, which recently published its first reporting frameworks via the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).
“The goal of the SIL is to support stakeholders and all market participants on their disclosure journeys, guiding them to address disparities in sustainability reporting requirements while supporting the further harmonization of the reporting landscape at the global level,” the GRI said.
The SIL will be launched in Singapore on November 20.
