PE International gets the first GRI Software and Tools Program certification - 0 views

  •  
    GRI is the organisation that has pioneered the development of a sustainability reporting framework. Its aim is to make the disclosure on economic, environmental and social performance as commonplace and comparable as financial reporting.

The allegations describe a scenario of more than 24,000 fraudulent posts made by 670 different accounts

    In the amount of time it took to create all these fake posts and different accounts, maybe they could have done something constructive? People don't seem to realise how much their actions are tracked on the internet. Beyond embarrassing, it's also becoming a grounds for legal action
