Kick-off Service

Start your organization's reporting process


​​GRI’s Kick-off Service helps organizations kick start their reporting process through customized workshops, guidance and a final action plan. The Kick-off Service is aimed to support first time or relatively new reporters.

For this service, requesting organizations work together with GRI representatives to prepare for the first steps of their reporting process. 

The service starts with a call where representatives of the organization, together with senior GRI staff assess their current sustainability reporting status. 
The assessment focuses on the themes of stakeholders, current sustainability initiatives, status of report coordination team (if there is one in place) etc. 

Once the assessment is complete, GRI will offer an online workshop for the report coordination team where the GRI facilitator will: 

  • Explain the initial activities to be undertaken in the beginning of the reporting cycle
  • Discuss the stakeholder groups of the organization, and if and how in general they have been contacted before
  • Support in identifying the initial list of impacts and stakeholder groups
  • Support in creating an action plan for reporting
  • Help the report coordination team to identify the audience for their Kick-off meeting.

The final outcome of this workshop will be either a half-day onsite Kick-off meeting workshop or a 60-75 minute long online Kick-off meeting presentation. Participants to the meeting will comprise of senior GRI staff, the report coordination team and the identified audience for this meeting.
