* CSE to host Global Reporting Initiative workshop on Sustainability Reporting and CSR
Thu, Mar 22, 2018, 10:09 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 22, Colombo: The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) in collaboration with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) will host a workshop on Sustainability Reporting and Corporate Social Responsibility on 5 April 2018 from 3.00 p.m. - 05.30 p.m. at the Kingsbury Hotel.

The event, which will be exclusive to representatives of companies listed on the CSE, will address the business case for adopting sustainable business practices in listed entities and provide insight into monitoring, managing and communicating sustainability related performance effectively.

Listed companies are welcome to nominate up to two representatives to attend the workshop, ideally those that have a direct involvement with the organization's sustainability initiatives. Nominations could be made via email to chamikat@cse.lk on or before Monday 26 March 2018.

Participants have the opportunity to learn why and how organizations of all types and sizes prepare sustainability reports while discovering GRI, and how the Reporting Framework can help manage economic, environmental and governance impacts responsibly.

The GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards happens to be the first and most widely adopted global standards for sustainability reporting. The practice of disclosing sustainability information inspires accountability, helps identify and manage risks, and enables organizations to seize new opportunities.

In a related development, the CSE also recently launched a publication titled 'Communicating Sustainability: Six Recommendations for Listed Companies', to assist listed companies in addressing environmental, social and governance factors in their capital market communication. The e‐version of the publication is available for download at www.cse.lk under the 'publications' section.
