With increasing stakeholder demand for more corporate accountability, standard concepts of business ethics and environmental stewardship have evolved into more powerful markers of corporate social responsibility and company sustainability reporting. Universal guidelines have been developed to promote increased operational transparency and to level informational reporting asymmetries. The demands and expectations of investors and other entities affected by a business’s operations have served as a catalyst for the development and implementation of universally accepted standards to benchmark an organization’s performance. In this discourse, one such example of a company’s voluntary reporting pursuant to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 international standards is presented in a unique fashion: university students served as key participants in the reporting process. The pedagogical implications of this activity underscore the need to introduce the formal instruction of other markers of economic success to our next generation of business leaders. This case study focuses upon a group of multidisciplinary students from Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, Indiana, who partnered with an established company to jointly prepare an organizational stakeholder report pursuant to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 metrics.
