The Global Sustainability Index

The key to improved board oversight of sustainability
March 28, 2013

In this four-part video blog series, Francis Quinn, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Technologies at WebFilings, shares his insights on CSR reporting following the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January. In part one of this four-part series, Francis discusses the challenges businesses currently face when disclosing financial and extra-financial information.

The Global Sustainability Index (GSI) will allow companies to overcome limitations of traditional financial and extra-financial disclosures. The GSI will provide guidance and benchmarking for businesses and stakeholders and will allow for businesses to be ranked in a transparent and pertinent manner to gain net competitive advantage.

Watch this video to learn more about the GSI, and visit the Wdesk CSR Reporting Solution page to see how you can improve the accuracy and consistency of your CSR reports. Visit us tomorrow to see the next video in this blog series.
