Four new translations of GRI 101: Biodiversity 2024

As a part of GRI’s commitment to make the standards accessible to a diverse global audience, GRI 101, the Topic Standard for biodiversity, can now be downloaded free of charge in French, German, Indonesian, and Simplified Chinese.

Setting a new global benchmark in accountability for biodiversity impacts, GRI 101 supports organizations around the world to disclose their impacts on biodiversity and deliver full transparency throughout the supply chain. The revised GRI Standard updates and will replace GRI 304: Biodiversity 2016, and will be formally in effect for reporting on 1 January 2026. 

The GRI Biodiversity Standard delivers:  

  • Full transparency throughout the supply chain –where the most significant impacts on biodiversity can go under reported.  
  • Location-specific reporting on impacts – detailed information on the place and size of operational sites.  
  • New disclosures on the direct drivers of biodiversity loss – land use, climate change, overexploitation, pollution and invasive species.  
  • Requirements for reporting impacts on society – including those on communities and Indigenous Peoples.  

GRI 101 builds on global developments in the biodiversity field, including the UN Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, the Science Based Target Network and the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures.  

GRI thanks the peer reviewers who contributed their time on a voluntary basis to ensure the accuracy and usability of these translations, expanding the global reach of the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting standards.
