Our partnerships and collaboration

We collaborate with a diverse range of partners to advance sustainability, using the power of reporting to unlock benefits for organizations, people and the planet. 

We work with investors, stock exchanges and regulators to improve sustainability disclosure, and with governments to develop policies that stimulate corporate transparency.

We also run a range of programs in developing countries and emerging markets funded by our strategic partners to build reporting capacity, empower SMEs, and create more transparent global value chains. 

A catalyst for sustainable development

The GRI Standards are strongly aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals - the global materiality assessment for our world. We provide resources, tools and practical assistance that enables companies to understand and communicate their contribution to the SDGs.

Through our collaborations with governments, NGOs and others, we are empowering the private sector to take on a greater role in the collective efforts to accelerate progress in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
