Media Wise attended this year’s Amsterdam Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency  as official conference reporter, writing summaries of the main points made during the plenary sessions of this important forum. The Global Reporting Initiative, which organised the conference, set 2015 as a target date by which all OECD large and medium-sized companies should be issuing  reports on their environmental, social and governance performance, not just economic performance.  By 2020, all companies should have integrated ESG criteria fully into their philosophy, approach and operations.  More than 1,200 came from far and wide to hear the 200 or so speakers on sustainability themes.
