GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards

GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards

Globally accepted sustainability reporting standards create a common language for organizations and stakeholders by which impacts of organizations can be communicated and understood. They provide organizations with a standardized way to describe their economic, environmental and social impacts and increase the quality of information available to stakeholders, thereby enabling greater accountability of organizations. GRI Standards are designed to enhance the global comparability and quality of sustainability information, resulting in greater transparency on economic, environmental and social impacts. GRI Standards are developed and approved by the Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) with the intention of those standards being applied on a globally consistent basis thus providing stakeholders with the ability to compare the impacts of organizations.
