Alignment

Take a look at the various services we provide to help make your GRI report easier to navigate and to ensure your disclosures are aligned with GRI and, where applicable the SDGs.
Which Services do we offer?

GRI aims to help organizations continuously improve the quality of their sustainability reports, because better reporting means better communication with stakeholders: it means transparency. With transparency, we aim to empower decisions that create social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone. 

GRI’s Alignment Services help organizations make their reports easier to navigate, by improving their alignment with the GRI Standards and G4 Guidelines.

GRI Standards have superseded the G4 Guidelines, which will be phased out on 2 July 2018.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 them. 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. 




Disclosure Review Service
GRI’s new Disclosure Review Service is designed to help organizations improve the content of their report by reviewing specific disclosures from the GRI Standards. These disclosures are strategically selected to address an organization’s approach towards stakeholder engagement and materiality assessment thus aiming to improve the overall quality of the report.

Content Index Service
​Improve the accuracy and usability of your GRI content index and ensures its alignment with the GRI Standards or G4 Guidelines.

Materiality Disclosures Service
​Materiality of information is at the center of sustainability reporting. This service confirms that the disclosures related to Materiality are correctly located in the GRI content index and in the text of your final report.

SDG Mapping Service
​Making the link to the SDGs clearer, the SDG Mapping Service can give your internal and external stakeholders more faith in your reporting, thereby increasing trust.

GRI will confirm that the SDGs are correctly mapped against the GRI disclosures from the GRI Standards and G4 Guidelines, making the disclosures easily traceable in the report. 

GRI-Referenced Service
​GRI Standards offer more flexibility to reporters through their modular structure. Reporters who do not use the Standards in their entirity to report on their material topics, may now use the 'GRI-referenced' claim.

GRI will confirm that the 'GRI-referenced' claim is transparent and aligned with the GRI Standards. 
 
 

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. 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.
