Key facts – Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

GRI is an international independent organisation that helps businesses, governments and other organisations understand and communicate the impact of business on critical sustainability issues such as climate change, human rights, corruption and many others.


No.1 Pioneer of sustainability reporting (since 1997)

GRI was formed by the United States-based non-profits CERES (Coalition for Environmentally
Responsible Economies) and Tellus Institute, with the support of the United Nations
Environment Programme (UNEP) in 1997.


Three hundred and sixty degrees sustainability action

With the GRI Standards companies and organisations can address all their important impacts, no matter what they are. The GRI Standards are a flexible, all-round, methodical approach used by some of the world’s most successful companies to take action on Environmental, Economic and Social impacts.


Globally, only the GRI Standards

provide a complete set of standards that uniquely addresses all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Sustainability reporters worldwide do not need to use any other sustainability framework for their report.


GRI is the co-constructor’ of new
EU sustainability reporting standards

As confirmed by EFRAG, the ESRS are, as much as possible, fully aligned with the GRI Standards. This sends a clear signal to established GRI reporters that they are well prepared for the ESRS, and can leverage their existing reporting processes.


78% of the world’s largest 250 companies

The GRI Standards are used by the vast majority of the most successful companies
for sustainability reporting.


Sustainability reporting made easy – Any company
or organisation can report

The GRI Standards can be used by any organisation, regardless of sector, size and location.


GRI: Recommended by the UN Global Compact

Under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2010, the UN Global Compact adopts the GRI Standards as the recommended sustainability reporting framework for companies to communicate on progress made.
