Hello Sustainability Photographers!
GRI is creating an online photo gallery on its web portal and is looking for contributors from our lightstalkers CSR/Sustainability group. Each month a selection of photographs on a sustainability related theme by a profiled photographer will be exhibited.
Contributors will have their work exposed on our site, which has more than 50,000 unique visitors per month. GRI will also feature the contributing photographer in their monthly newsletter, which has a current circulation of 14,000. All website visitors and newsletter recipients have a keen interest in sustainability issues and include representatives of businesses, civil society, the investment community and the media â€“ all who may require images relating to sustainability.
GRI is about to launch a huge worldwide campaign which will drive increased traffic to the website. In addition, GRI will be hosting the Second Amsterdam Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency in May next year, which will also increase the volume of visitors to the GRI portal.
The only ask from GRI is that the contributing photographer allows GRI to use a couple of their images on the site as an in kind contribution. If GRI wanted to use these pictures in any printed publications the contributing photographer would be remunerated accordingly and permission will be sought beforehand.
The first story to be exhibited will be â€˜Biodiesal â€“ from the field to the tankâ€™ from our group member Ana Elisa Fuentes.
GRI is interested in all sorts of sustainability stories. In particular we are after stories that show how businesses are embracing sustainability in innovative ways and how this can open up new product lines or markets segments for them. Other specific themes that we are interested in include: participatory approaches to finding sustainable solutions; human rights; the supply chain in China; and of course the current topic of the moment, climate change.
Let me and the rest of our group know if you would like to contribute and what stories you have available to share on the gallery.
I look forward to hearing from you all soon!
