This session is an open-ended participative discussion on the complexities of managing environmental reporting processes. During the session participants will identify major issues and challenges in reporting, hard-to-reach publics, consumers and stakeholders, opportunities to reinvent reporting mechanisms, as well as success stories and sources of inspiration. The discussion will form a basis for a larger organizational survey on the subject.
Anyone who is interested in environmental reporting.
