Many sectors have unique sector-specific sustainability impacts that are not covered by the GRI Standards, such as noise pollution around airports or animal welfare in the food processing industry. In response, GRI developed guidance to report on these sector-specific issues, aiming to increase the number and quality of reports and to improve sustainability performance in the sectors covered.
Originally developed for the G3 and G3.1 Guidelines as Sector Supplements, the sector guidance was re-organized into G4 Sector Disclosures for use with the G4 Guidelines. With the transition of G4 to GRI Standards the G4 Sector Disclosures remain valid, and are recommended for use when reporting with the GRI Standards.
GRI does plan to update and expand the Sector Disclosures starting in 2017. More information about this work will be shared on the GSSB website when available.

Sector Guidance is developed with the expertise of international multi-stakeholder working groups. The development follows GRI’s due process, including Public Comment Periods, and is based on a consensus-seeking approach.
