Last week, Gaz Métro published its 2013 Sustainability Report according to the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”). Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Sustainable Development and Greenhouse Gas Management Consulting Group is proud to have supported them in this exercise. Gaz Métro is thus the second company in Canada to publish a report according to the most recent GRI standards, the fourth generation published in May 2013. Gaz Métro thereby is adopting a sustainability reporting tool that meets the highest international transparency standards.
A sustainability report measures an organization’s extra-financial performance in sustainability, particularly the social, environmental and economic aspects. These reports are increasingly popular, both in the public sector and in the private sector, with organizations of all sizes. In 2013, the guidelines published by the GRI were followed by over 2,500 organizations worldwide and more than 100 organizations in Canada.
Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, with the support of its partner Neuvaction, is a key player in sustainability reporting in Quebec. Johanne Gélinas, Partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, is one of the three trainers accredited in Quebec to offer GRI-certified training.
