WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California State Teachers’ Retirement System today released Global Stewardship at Work, its 2015—16 sustainability report. This is the third year the system published the report, which is based on the Global Reporting Initiative G4 Guidelines.
Sustainability reporting can help organizations to measure, understand and communicate their economic, environmental, social and governance performance more effectively.
The annual report includes a number of required GRI report “standard” disclosures, but primarily consists of material issue content, which is derived from a biennial materiality survey sent to members, employees and other stakeholders for their input.
This year, our stakeholders selected six topics which we thoroughly address in the report:
Ethics and Compliance
Sustainability-Related Risk Management
Workforce Development, Employee Diversity/Inclusion and Employee Engagement
The title and theme of the third annual report reflects CalSTRS’ global stewardship and our commitment to sustainability “at work” to provide the retirement service needs for our members and beneficiaries – in perpetuity.
