There are three key areas of relevance to ICCA’s CSR policy: the policies, activities and impact of the association itself; the scope for ICCA to influence the activities and impact of its members around the world; and advocacy and global standards issues relating to the overall impact of international meetings, which will primarily be addressed in partnership with other leading meetings industry organizations.
The starting point is to create a standard set of reporting parameters so that members and other stakeholders can understand how ICCA is progressing over time in achieving sustainability objectives and standards.
ICCA’s reports are structured according to GRI (Global Reporting Initiative, the UN standard for sustainability) reporting guidelines.
