GRI Standards Report Registration System
How do I register a GRI Standards-based report or any published material referencing the GRI Standards?
You can register a GRI Standards-based report or any published material referencing the GRI Standards using the GRI Standards Report Registration System or by filling in this FORM.
To register a report using the GRI Standards Report Registration System please click here and log in using your MyGRI account, or, if you don’t have an account yet, sign up for one. Once you have logged in, follow the steps to register your report. More information on each step can be found in the Guide to Register a GRI Standards Report.
NOTE: Due to an ongoing review of the GRI Sustainability Disclosure Database and the registration process, your submission will be queued, and it may be processed at a later stage in line with future decisions. This means that your registration will not be made publicly available. This will not affect your notification compliance.
If you require further assistance or have a question, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why do I see a registered report in the system with the status ‘unverified’ and how do I complete the verification process?
After entering the GRI Standards Report Registration System you may see a list of Standards reports associated with your organization. It is possible that some will show the status ‘unverified’, while others will show the status ‘verified’.
If it is the first case meaning that you will see the status ‘unverified’, then the respective report has been previously added to the system either by a 3rd party (such as data partner or consultants) or by another contact of your organization, but it has not been verified yet. All you need to do is to edit that report and verify it by re-submitting the report.
What happens with my report after I submit it?
After you click the 'Submit report' button, the notification process as per clause 3.1. from GRI 101: Foundation 2016 is complete.
Due to the ongoing review of the GRI Sustainability Disclosure Database and the registration process, your submission will be queued and it may be processed at a later stage in line with future decisions. This will not affect your compliance.
Before December 2020, submissions were processed and were made public on the list of GRI Standards Reports and the GRI Sustainability Disclosure Database. However, this process has stopped as of December 2020.
Has the content of my report been checked by GRI?
The GRI Registration Team was not checking the content of the report; it only checked if the information submitted via this system was correctly aligned with the registered report and whether the claim included in the registered report used the correct wording.
Can I (as a third party) register a report on behalf of a reporting organization?
The GRI Standards Report Registration System is designed to enable reporting organizations to notify GRI of the use of the GRI Standards, as required in clause 3.4 of GRI 101: Foundation. Information about the organization and its report must be completed and verified either:
- by an individual from the reporting organization or
- by a 3rd party representing the organization who is authorized to submit the GRI Standards report on the organization's behalf. In addition, the 3rd party must include in the registration an organization’s contact as additional contact and must inform the respective person about sharing their details with GRI for registration purposes.
