    Event Details:

    Join us in an exclusive webinar on an important update on legislation now being implemented in the European Union (EU) and learn more about how this legislation may impact your company’s operations.

    In April 2014 the European Parliament adopted the Directive on the disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by large companies operating in each of the EU member states. The Directive requires these companies to report on environmental, social, human rights, anti-corruption, bribery, and employee-related matters; and to describe their business model, outcomes, and risks of policies on the above topics, as well as the diversity policy applied for management and supervisory bodies.

    During the webinar, Eric Israel, Director of GRI North America, will discuss the directive’s key features on how this may impact your company and stay a head of the game with the following special guests:

    • Chiara Ferracioli, Policy Coordinator, Global Reporting Initiative
    • Hank Boerner, Chairman, G&A Institute, USA Data Partner
    • Louis Coppola, Executive Vice President, G&A Institute, USA Data Partner
