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.

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.

A document including mapping of SDGs against the GRI disclosures is available on the GRI website, for the GRI Standards.


 What does the SDG Mapping Service Review?

  1. ​Is the GRI content index included in the report?
  2. Are the linkages to the SDGs in the content index accurate?
  3. Does the content index have clear references to the location of the SDG- linked disclosures?
  4. Are these SDG-linked disclosures labeled correctly, and easily found, within the body of the report?

 what are the timelines and fees for the SDG Mapping Service?
