GRI (Global Reporting Initiative)
GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) is the independent, international organization that helps businesses and other organizations take responsibility for their impacts, by providing them with the global common language to communicate those impacts. GRI provides the world’s most widely used standards for sustainability reporting – the GRI Standards.

The GRI secretariat is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and we have a network of seven regional hubs ensuring we can support organizations and stakeholders worldwide.

Mission
To enable organizations to be transparent and take responsibility for their impacts, enabled through the world’s most widely used standards for sustainability reporting - the GRI Standards.

New Standards into effect for reporting in 2021
Three new or updated topic Standards should be adhered to for sustainability reports published from this year onward. GRI 207: Tax, GRI 403 Occupational Health and Safety, and GRI 303 Water and Effluents came in to effect as of 1 January, meaning organizations that identify any of these topics as material are now to apply the new Standards.

Why report?
Reporting signals a responsible organization. One that is dedicated to being open and honest with its stakeholders.

Through reporting, an organization can understand and better manage its impacts on people and the planet. It can identify and reduce risks, seize new opportunities, and take action towards becoming a responsible, trusted organization in a more sustainable world.
