The GRI Focal Point Australia’s objectives are:

• Drive the mainstreaming of sustainability reporting through engaging with new sectors and industries throughout Australia
• Communicate the latest developments around sustainability reporting with stakeholder groups
• Channel local stakeholders’ feedback to GRI to increase local ownership of sustainability reporting and GRI’s Framework.

The Focal Point is funded by CPA Australia and KPMG who are members of the Focal Point Australia's Thought Leaders Council (TLC). The TLC consists of a group of organisations that undertake to make a financial or in kind contribution locally to the GRI Focal Point Australia as well as contributing to the leadership of a strategic objective of GRI in line with the objectives of their own organisation. St James Ethics Centre is also a member of the TLC along with the Australian Government who have undertaken the role of observer.

CPA, Australia
KPMG, Australia

The hosting partner is
Saint Ethics Centre
