Can the Global Reporting Initiative help restore faith in the media As if the advent of 'Generation We-Want-It-All-For-Free' and the rise of social media were not challenging enough, recent events mean that media organisations undoubtedly face an uphill struggle in the years to come. Business models under pressure and public distrust towards mediacontent are coming soon to a boardroom near you. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) recently launched its final draft of the Media Sector Supplement, a set of indicators and questions aimed at measuring, in as much detail as possible, the social, environmental and financial impacts of media companies on society. The idea is that mediacompanies will become better 'corporate citizens' as the tools for holding them accountable become more refined and allow for comparisons across borders.

What BP could teach you about social media smarts Home » Editor's Comment, Training An interesting new ranking arrived in my in-box Thursday morning grading the most social-savvy FTSE 100 companies. In the top 10 were plenty of brands you’d expect – Marks and Spencer, Burberry, Unilever and Intercontinental Hotels. Also making the cut was Big Oil.

Are companies on the button with their online sustainability programmes? In 2010, Pepsi created a lot of fizz in the advertising world by choosing to bypass the Super Bowl — the biggest event in the brand-marketing calendar.
