MCI Pioneers Global Reporting Initiative In Sustainability

With the release of its 2010 Sustainability Report, “Taking Action”, MCI has become the first international events agency to use the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework to report its economic, environmental and social strategies in order to benchmark performance.

“Taking Action” is a product of the collaboration between MCI offices and stakeholders and is directly informed by the UN Global Compact and GRI reporting guidelines. It received a C-Level Application Check Certificate upon evaluation by GRI.

Highlights of the 2010 report include:

  • The carbon footprint of MCI internal operations measures 4,237 metric tons of carbon dioxide – comparable to 2% of the overall CO2 emissions measured across all MCI client events.
  • Improved sustainability performance shown across the group with 18 MCI offices now compliant with internal CSR procedures (an increase from 5 offices in 2009).
  • Strong evidence of engagement in socially responsible causes with MCI talent supporting over 30 charities, investing almost 900 hours of time and raising over €74,000 for community projects.
  • Increasing business in the sustainability sector with MCI being chosen as the PCO and consultant for more than 60 of the world’s leading events and associations focused on energy and sustainable development.

Sebastien Tondeur, CEO of MCI, commented; “I am very proud of the steady progress we are making towards our sustainability goals. Through triple bottom line reporting and transparently sharing our success, as well as our learning and areas for improvement, we hope that we can advance not only our own CSR initiatives, but also serve to highlight the business case for sustainability in the meetings industry.”
