The proceedings of a recent workshop jointly hosted by the Pacific Institute and the Global Environmental Management Initiative (GEMI) are now available.

The workshop was held so that industry and public interest groups could discuss and hopefully agree on the meaning of “corporate transparency” — and the best way to achieve it.

The discussion was informal and productive, providing both groups an opportunity to learn from one another on how businesses can improve upon the effectiveness and credibility of their environmental management and performance.
