The attending company representatives used the discussion to share their experiences in preparing public non-financial reports – including in accordance with G4, the latest version of the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) – and approaches to organising dialogue with interested parties during report drafting. They also talked about foreign and domestic practices in regulating public non-financial reports, developing and implementing internal regulations and ordinances in this field, and interacting with consulting and audit companies during report preparation.
