GRI Standards

How can the GRI Standards be used?

There are two basic approaches for using the GRI Standards:

1. Using the GRI Standards as a set to prepare a sustainability report in accordance with the Standards

The GRI Standards have been developed primarily to be used together, to help organisations prepare a sustainability report based on the Reporting Principles and focusing on material topics. If using this approach, organisations have to use the three Standards in the Universal series (100) and only the topic-specific Standards (series 200, 300 and 400) that relate to the material topics identified.

2. Using selected Standards, or parts of their content, to report specific information, without preparing a report in accordance with the Standards

This option is referred to as a ‘GRI-referenced’ claim. If using this approach, an organisation chooses as many or as few Standards, according to its specific reporting needs.
