SDG Mapping Service

Confirms that the SDGs are correctly mapped against the GRI disclosures


 What is the SDG Mapping Service?


​The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been developed following an open consultation process led by the United Nations, governments around the world have committed themselves to achieving these goals before 2030.

A document including mapping of SDGs against the GRI disclosure is available on the GRI website, for both the GRI Standards and G4 Guidelines.

GRI Standards have superseded the G4 Guidelines, which will be phased out on 1 July 2018. Use of the GRI Standards will be required for all reports or other materials published on or after 1 July 2018. The G4 Guidelines will remain valid until then. GRI Services Team accepts applications for Content Index Services on G4 reports until 1 June 2018 and Materiality Disclosure and SDG Mapping Services until 15 June 2018. All services submitted on G4 reports will need to be completed before 30 June 2018 to qualify for the organizational mark. It is the organization's responsibility to ensure that their report using the G4 Guidelines is published before the G4 Guidelines become invalid. 
By making sustainability data more traceable and useable and the link to the SDGs more clear, the SDG Mapping Service can give your internal and external stakeholders more faith in your reporting, thereby increasing trust.
The GRI SDG Mapping Service focuses exclusively on those GRI disclosures where reporting organizations have indicated their reference to the SDGs. GRI will confirm that the SDGs are correctly mapped against the GRI and that these disclosures are easily traceable in the report.
