Demand for corporate accountability leads Sustainserv to expand offerings for training on corporate sustainability reporting

Boston, Mass-- April 1, 2011—In the wake of recent events tied to corporate responsibility, ranging from large-scale environmental damages to consumer safety concerns, demand for information on corporate sustainability has been on the rise.

Data from The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the world’s most widely recognized standard for corporate sustainability reporting, shows that more than 1800 GRI-based reports were filed in 2010, a nearly 70% increase over the previous two years.
