Every week G&A Institute assembles the value-added content that our team gathers for you as we closely monitor trends and developments in corporate sustainability, corporate responsibility, corporate citizenship, sustainable investing, and related topics and issues.
Our Editor-in-Chief Ken Cynar leads the daily effort and you see the results of his work in each issue of Highlights (note we are on #406 this week). We hope that you benefit from this effort, part of our information-sharing and educational mission.

As the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Data Partner for the United States of America, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, our team collects, analyzes and databases considerable volumes of data and narrative from the more than 1,200 reports we process each year (the reports are then made part of the GRI global inventory for public access).

We share volumes of information through our communication platforms, such as this weekly newsletter; our G&A Institute company website; the Accountability Central and Sustainability HQ web platform; the G&A Sustainability Update blog; our Twitter, Facebook, and other social media feeds; and more in-depth management briefs through our “G&A Institute To the Point!” platform.
IMPORTANT: As always, we welcome your engagement, invite your queries, your feedback, your suggestions for issues and trends to watch, and suggestions for the guidance of the information-sharing that we do. We’d also welcome the opportunity to speak with you about our consulting services. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this week’s issue, we’ve identified an especially higher number of important trends for you that are worth “tuning in to” as you continue on your sustainability journey.
“Sustainability “ trends that are the march – worldwide!
“Warm regards to you” from The Team at G&A Institute this sweltering summer in most parts!
