Disclosure Review Service

​Improve the quality of your report with GRI's new Disclosure Review Service!
The Service can be performed on draft or published reports. 


 What is the Disclosure Review Service?


Responding to interest from clients, we are proud to launch a new GRI service that fills a much-needed gap in the market. GRI’s new Disclosure Review Service is designed to help organizations improve the content of their report by reviewing specific disclosures and determine whether the organization has responded to the information requests from the requirements outlined in the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards).

 GRI has piloted this service with selected organizations. Hear what they have to say about the service below!

“The earlier the new service is used to generate the reports, the greater the benefit. Because the review team plays the role of the stakeholders, the dialogue improves the quality, the foundation, the transparency and the comparability of different reports.”
Moritz Vögeli– Lecturer, Institut für Umwelt und Natürliche Ressourcen

“At LandCorp we are committed to improving our sustainability reporting. The GRI Disclosure Review Service looked at 10 key disclosures and provided more information on the Materiality and Stakeholder Inclusiveness principles. The clear feedback on the disclosures ensured we addressed every information request as set out by the requirements in the GRI Standards. It also highlighted areas, particularly on the principles, that we could clarify and improve in our next reporting cycle." Nivia Giuffre – Sustainability Strategy Coordinator, LandCorp 

“I believe the service can help organizations further improve their efforts to be more transparent, and to notice the issues that they must work on in order to become more sustainable." Florencia Renda- Sustainability Analyst, Santander Río

This was our first-time reporting using the GRI Standards and this service was invaluable. The feedback was helpful and communication between myself and the team was timely and supportive. The Disclosure Review Service has helped increase our confidence in the transparency and effectiveness of our first report using the GRI Standards“, Claire Brightley, Lead Adviser for Carbon Management, Yorkshire Water

Disclaimer: GRI services do not verify, check or pass judgment on the quality of the disclosures within a report nor the process of preparing the disclosures. That responsibility remains with the reporting organization and its stakeholders. GRI’s services are not an external assurance engagement, although are complementary. This service indicates whether or not the organization has addressed  the information requests in the GRI Standards that are specified as being within the scope of this service. GRI does not carry any legal responsibility for the implementation of the feedback by the organization. The GSSB is an independent operating entity under the auspices of GRI and has sole responsibility for setting globally accepted standards for sustainability reporting and as such has no involvement with the delivery of GRI Services.
