An XBRL Taxonomy is a hierarchical dictionary of tags, specific to each reporting standard.
Standard setters for financial reporting have developed major taxonomies, for example for reporting in accordance with IFRS and US-GAAP. GRI developed the GRI Taxonomy to enable organizations to report sustainability information in XBRL.For more information visit http://www.xbrl.org/Taxonomies
If your report is based on the G4 Guidelines, you can participate in the GRI XBRL Reports Program.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All sustainability reporters can use the GRI Taxonomy, which is freely available.To use the GRI Taxonomy, reporters need to download the relevant files from the GRI website, gain knowledge of XBRL, and have access to appropriate software.For more information on tools and services for XBRL, visit http://www.xbrl.org/tools-and-services.
GRI has published the Architecture and Style Guide and Implementation Guide to help use the GRI Taxonomy.
No, the GRI Taxonomy is free to the general public.
