Support the French translation of GRI Standards

​Following the successful launch of GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards in October 2016, we’re working to translate these global standards into French as one of our priority languages. To speed up this process and ensure a high-quality translation, we’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the process.
Contribute to the French translation of GRI Standards
​Already more than 260 francophone organizations use the GRI G4 Guidelines to report on their impacts and to produce their sustainability reports. Help them join the thousands of organizations worldwide already transitioning from G4 to the GRI Standards, and enable companies that use French as a main business language to access this new global standard.
