Lead the way in sustainability reporting and become a GRI Standards Pioneer!

We've established the Standards Pioneers Program exclusively for GOLD Community members – GRI’s core supporters. Participants in the Pioneers Program will be at the forefront of reporting. Be one of the first organizations to adopt the GRI Standards and gain exclusive support and benefits.

Exclusive, Interactive Program

As part of the Program, you’ll have direct access to GRI staff for support and Q&A while producing your first GRI Standards report. You’ll also have access to exclusive resources that will provide guidance and inspiration in your transition from G4 to the GRI Standards.

You’ll be invited to attend exclusive webinars to share knowledge with other Pioneers and gain support you throughout your entire 2017 reporting cycle. You will also be profiled during the Standards Launch Events and on the GRI website. Pioneer reports will also be featured prominently in GRI’s communication channels.
