About GRI

GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) is the independent, international organization that helps businesses and other organizations take responsibility for their impacts, by providing them with the global common language to communicate those impacts. We provide the world’s most widely used standards for sustainability reporting – the GRI Standards.

The GRI Secretariat is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and we have a network of seven regional offices to help ensure we can support organizations and stakeholders worldwide.

Catalyst for a sustainable world

We work with businesses, investors, policymakers, civil society, labor organizations and other experts to develop the GRI Standards and promote their use by organizations around the world.

With thousands of reporters in more than 100 countries, the Standards are advancing the practice of sustainability reporting, and enabling organizations and their stakeholders to take action and make better decisions that create economic, environmental and social benefits for everyone. 

Mission & history

Global presence

Our seven regional offices, strategically located around the world, help to advance reporting and respond to the needs of local stakeholders at both regional and country level. Each office is guided by advisory groups which include high-level representation from the region. 

Our regional offices are based in Johannesburg (Africa), Singapore (ASEAN), São Paulo (Brazil), Hong Kong (Greater China Region), Bogota (Latin America), New York (North America), and New Delhi (South Asia). All other regions (including Europe) are supported from GRI’s Secretariat in Amsterdam (The Netherlands).
