Reach for Change’s core operation is build on the relations to stakeholders. And we believe being highly involved with the stakeholders is the only way to operate. Reach for Change is committed to inviting the primary stakeholders into the core of operations, to the most important decisions, and also, to present easy accessible and transparent information on the results and effect of the core programs. Stakeholder involvement in key activities as well as deep insight in the effects of the programs are core elements.
As a help for businesses and organizations, when systemizing their approach to stakeholder engagement and transparency, there are a wide range of alternative frameworks, guidelines and approaches. Reach for Change has chosen to follow the GRI G4 guideline since it is widely accepted, and used by some of Reach for Change’s key stakeholders. Our hope is that the report will give our readers a better understanding of our organization, our methods and results. But also that it will facilitate sharing experiences and benchmark towards others in our field.
The GRI framework offers guidance on how to identify material sustainability topics, and how to monitor and manage them. Just as other sectors, the NGO sector need to think about, act on and demonstrate their sustainable strategies. As a NGO, we need to show that we can use the same principles that we ask from others, demonstrating accountability and transparency.
