GRI

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) drives sustainability reporting by all organizations. GRI produces the world's most comprehensive Sustainability Reporting Framework to enable greater organizational transparency. The Framework, including the Reporting Guidelines, sets out the Principles and Indicators organizations can use to measure and report their economic, environmental, and social performance. GRI is committed to continuously improving and increasing the use of the Guidelines, which are freely available to the public. GRI, a multi-stakeholder non-governmental organization, was founded in the US in 1997 by CERES and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). In 2002, GRI moved its central office to Amsterdam, where the Secretariat is currently located. GRI has regional 'Focal Points' in Australia, Brazil, China, India and the USA, and a worldwide network of 30,000 people. GRI Vision: A sustainable global economy where organizations manage their economic, environmental, social and governance performance and impacts responsibly, and report transparently. GRI Mission: To make sustainability reporting standard practice by providing guidance and support to organizations.
