GRI sustainability reports

Reporting according to GRI

Background

The political pressure on enterprises to disclose the details of their sustainability performance is on the rise. The EU Directive 2014/95/EU on the disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by corporations and groups came into force on 6 December 2014. The member states of the European Union are now required to codify the directive into national law within two years.

Those companies affected by the legislation will be required in the future to disclose their strategies, risks and results with respect to environmental, social and employee concerns, as well as all relevant data with respect to human rights, anti-corruption measures and management and supervisory-level diversity. The companies are to be allowed to document this information using the appropriate international, European or national guidelines of their choice (e.g. Global Reporting Initiative, GRI).

Competence centre 2000 Watt Society

The 2000 Watt Society has emerged in recent years as a benchmark for all stakeholders in Switzerland who are active in planning the future of energy supply. Federal, cantonal, city, municipal and trade-association representatives are all working together to work out the details of this energy-supply goal.

The 2000 Watt Society Competence Centre was founded in December 2012 in connection with these developments. Represented in the three main language regions of Switzerland, the aim of the CC is to provide clear and competent information about the goals and instruments of the 2000 Watt Society. The activities, commitment and know-how of experts, interest groups and private individuals is to be bundled and coordinated so as to help increase public awareness of this important vision.
