Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a leading organization in the sustainability field. GRI promotes the use of sustainability reporting as a way for organizations to become more sustainable and contribute to sustainable development.
A sustainable global economy should combine long term profitability with ethical behavior, social justice, and environmental care.
This means that when companies and organizations consider sustainability – and integrate it into how they operate – they must consider four key areas of their performance and impacts: economic, environmental, social and governance.
GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Framework is a reporting system that enables all companies and organizations to measure, understand and communicate this information. GRI's mission is to make sustainability reporting standard practice; one which helps to promote and manage change towards a sustainable global economy.
