The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which provides the world’s most widely adopted sustainability reporting framework, is set to publish its newest standard — on tax transparency — on Thursday, December 5th, 2019.

The GRI Tax Standard will be the first global standard for country-by-country public reporting of corporate taxes. It was drafted through a multi-stakeholder and independent process, while it’s development was informed by global consultation, including a public comment period when strong support was received from investors.

The FACT Coalition — in partnership with GRI, AFSCME, and Oxfam America — is holding an event for journalists and other interested parties at noon EST on Thursday, December 5, 2019 in Room SVC-200 of the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C.  The event will feature remarks from:
