The webinar “Disability in Sustainability Reporting” will be held the 29th October 2019 from 12:00 to 13:00 (CEST) and offers the opportunity to learn about the updated Guide “Disability in Sustainability Reporting”, by Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Fundación ONCE.
The Guide, developed in 2015, has been updated in the framework of Disability Hub Europe – a project led by Fundación ONCE and co-funded by the European Social Fund – to respond to the GRI Standards and to the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
This Guide, one of its kind, is designed to help organizations communicate their commitment to respecting and promoting the rights of people with disabilities. It can help organizations understand what activities can have an impact, whether positive or negative, on the rights of people with disabilities, and which GRI disclosures can be used as the basis for reporting on those impacts.
Finally, the document can also help organizations to better understand the business value of disability, as regards both creating inclusive workplaces, as well as taking advantage of the business case of disability for the development of new products, services and physical environments.
Additionally, L’Oréal, IBM and Telefónica will share with participants how they report on disability and how it benefits both business and inclusion.
Our Corporate Members, National Partner Organisations (NPOs), as well as Reporting and/or Sustainability Managers, are welcomed to participate.
