Compliance With A Higher Standard, 11.10.04

Compliance Pipeline

Global Reporting Initiative A coalition of analysts at 17 investment firms, representing over $147 billion in assets, met yesterday in Washington. D.C. to urge publicly traded companies around the world to meet a higher standard of reporting on corporate governance, environmental, labor and other key issues.

In a joint statement, the analysts recommend that companies start reporting annually on their key social and environmental policies, practices and performance. The statement notes that companies are facing a growing number of questions and request for reports about these issues from investors, customers, environmental and labor groups, and the public. However, the manner in which companies provide such information now varies widely.

The coalition of analysts suggested that companies base their reporting on the Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The GRI is an independent institution that has developed standardized sustainability reporting guidelines with the active participation of representatives from business, accounting, investment, environmental, human rights, research and labor organizations from around the world.

GRI indicators include measures of economic performance (such as total payroll and community donations); environmental performance (such as greenhouse gas emissions and water use); labor practices (such as worker health and safety and diversity); human rights (such as policies around child labor and indigenous rights); society (such as community impacts, bribery, and political contributions); and product responsibility (such as customer health and safety, advertising, consumer privacy).

"We shall need compromises in the days ahead, to be sure. But these will be, or should be, compromises of issues, not principles. We can compromise our political positions, but not ourselves. We can resolve the clash of interests without conceding our ideals. And even the necessity for the right kind of compromise does not eliminate the need for those idealists and reformers who keep our compromises moving ahead, who prevent all political situations from meeting the description supplied by Shaw: "smirched with compromise, rotted with opportunism, mildewed by expedience, stretched out of shape with wirepulling and putrefied with permeation.
Compromise need not mean cowardice. .."

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"
