Content index template

Create your own GRI content index

The GRI content index makes your reported information traceable and increases its credibility and transparency.  

By using GRI’s content index template, you can create a complete GRI content index that helps stakeholders navigate the disclosures and information that your organization has reported. 

The GRI content index templates include the revised GRI Universal Standards 2021 and the adapted GRI Topic Standards.

About the template

The content index template provides a free, do-it-yourself guide for creating a complete GRI content index. In a few simple steps, you can customize and include information such as your material topics, the list of reported disclosures, and the titles of the GRI Standards used, including Sector Standards.

Instructions are included for preparing a GRI content index when reporting in accordance with and with reference to the GRI Standards, in a user-friendly Excel format file.
