As a network based organization, GRI collects personal information from stakeholders via its website, email, and other communications. Respect for privacy is essential for a trusting relationship between GRI and its stakeholders, and GRI has well-developed policies for protecting personal data.
Accessing resources on GRI’s website often means registering as a user.
Users access services like online newsletters, GRI Services, discussion forums, report registration, E-shop purchases, and specialized information sources.
Users give contact information - such as name, email address and country - and choose a username and password. This information ensures that users get the services they request, but GRI does not share this information with third parties or contact users for any reason other than to provide the information or services requested. Registration is free of charge.
Information collection: Standards related feedback and comments
The Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) is authorized by its Terms of Reference to develop and issue Sustainability Reporting Standards (SRSs) and related Interpretations. These documents are to be developed and issued in the public interest and according to due process.
The GSSB Due Process Protocol asks for public consultation of the exposures drafts and states that Comments made by respondents to an exposure draft are a matter of public record and are posted on the GSSB website after the end of the exposure period.
Should you choose to participate in these type of consultations all comments and selected personal details – name, country, constituency group and, if submitting comments on behalf of the organization, the organization’s name - will be on public record.
The GSSB and the Standards Division will not use your email address for any purpose other than clarifying a response or to inform you that a consultation process is about to close.
