Meehan moves to GRI
Michael Meehan, a veteran sustainability CEO and entrepreneur, has been appointed as the new chief executive of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
Meehan has built and managed several successful clean-tech businesses including Carbonetworks (2004-2010) and iVeridis Corporation (2010-2013) as well as leading critical sustainability reporting projects for governments and multinational companies around the world. He succeeds Ernst Ligteringen who is leaving GRI after 12 years of leadership.
Meehan commented: “I believe this is a pivotal time in sustainability reporting where innovation and collaboration are critical components of every organization’s sustainability strategy. GRI will continue playing its role in mainstreaming sustainability disclosures, and ultimately making a significant contribution to global sustainable development."
