TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Fifth annual “Taiwan Sustainability Reporting” conference was held in Taipei on March 22, with the head of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Timothy Mohin, along with over 200 other experts in sustainability reporting in attendance.
The conference, hosted in part by local Taiwan sustainability reporting platform, CSRone, is intended to provide a forum where private industries, NGOs, and government can come together towards improving sustainability reporting and encouraging responsible corporate conduct at large.
The theme of this year’s conference was “breaking boundaries, and creating opportunities.”
CSRone’s Chairman Gennie Yen (嚴德芬) noted in her address that when Taiwan began analyzing and compiling a national sustainability report five years ago in 2013, only 149 companies submitted corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports for the first year’s conference. [FULL STORY]
