Valp Joins Global Reporting Initiative

Its news bureau reports that Valparaiso University has become the third institution of higher education in the nation and fourth in the world invited to participate in the Global Reporting Initiative’s Matchmaker program, a new initiative that connects corporations with professors and students learning about and critiquing sustainable business practices.

GRI provides the world’s leading standard in sustainability reporting guidelines, used by two-thirds of Fortune 1000 companies to share their economic, environmental and social performance achievements and deficits affecting various stakeholders. The Matchmaker program strengthens that reporting by having a university critique the reports of both the company and an independent engineering or financial auditor that has assessed that company.
