Microsoft launches GRI certified reporting software
03 November 2010
​GRI is aware of an increasing number of software developers and providers who are either already using or are planning to include GRI copyright protected content in their software and/or digital reporting tools. In order to enable them to do so and to verify correct usage of GRI copyright protected content, GRI has established the GRI Certified Software and Tools Program.
​On 2 September 2010 GRI certified the software Environmental Sustainability Dashboard for Microsoft Dynamics AX and granted Microsoft permission to use the GRI copyright protected content in the program. This certification means that the software includes accurate content from the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework.

The Dashboard is now listed in the directory of GRI Certified Software and Tools Program together with other GRI certified software developed by PE INTERNATIONAL, SAP and S2D2.

Nelmara Arbex, Deputy Chief Executive of Global Reporting Initiative, said: “We’re glad to add the Environmental Sustainability Dashboard for Microsoft Dynamics AX to the list of GRI Certified Software. The GRI Certified Software and Tools Program guarantees that software providers are giving their users - people who prepare sustainability reports - accurate GRI content. Microsoft and its clients are on the right path to monitoring sustainability issues, ultimately promoting improvements to sustainability practices.”
