On my wishing list for Santa Claus is for the market to take the next step in moving towards a harmonisation of indexes.
As a forerunner in this field I will have to point to the GRI - having spent 2-3 years with the G4 just focusing on harmonisation. Why is this important? The more mature the formalisation of CR becomes the easier it will be to address materiality - both from a company's point of view but outmost from analysts and ranking institutions. The current situation, according to my view, is a too much of a tick the box exercise often still stressing the environment and ISO - which is not the most material issues for a telco. For next year I would like to see a 60-80% focus on Human Rights!
