Our position in the reporting landscape
The sustainability reporting landscape can appear a complex one, with different frameworks, standard setters and other initiatives all involved. To help bring clarity and encourage alignment, GRI works with other organizations in several ways.
Our efforts are focused on ensuring that the reporting process for companies is straightforward, while encouraging effective and comprehensive sustainability disclosure (inclusive of ESG - environmental, social and governance), which is needed to enable responsible business practices and contribute towards a more sustainable world.
As Eric Hespenheide, Chair of the GRI Board, explains:
"At GRI, we strongly believe in a vision of a single, coherent global set of reporting standards. That is why we pursue collaboration with other organizations.
We are committed to achieving greater transparency through disclosure, reducing the burden on reporting organizations, and ensuring organizations and their stakeholders can base decisions on consistent and comparable information."
