French Translation of the GRI Standards Now Available

Mar 29, 2018 3:00 PM ET

More than 260 French-speaking organizations use the GRI framework to produce sustainability reports that clearly show their economic, social and environmental impacts.

Companies whose main working language is French can now access the GRI Standards in French. The translation appears after a successful crowdfunding campaign in which participating sponsors raised funds to ensure the quality, consistency, accuracy and ease of use of the translations. Moving closer to the deadline of transitioning from the G4 Guidelines to GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards), these organizations can now work with a clear, modular model to help them improve on their reporting.​

Other available translations

Interest in this campaign has helped to highlight the importance of having the GRI Standards available in other languages, to ensure that companies around the world have tools to talk about their impacts in a way that is accessible to all stakeholders. We have translations currently available in French, Indonesian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese and Vietnamese. Translations into Arabic and German are being finalized and will be released shortly.
