This year the GRI G4 Guidelines will transition to GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards).

Following due process, the public comment period for the draft GRI Standards closed on 17 July 2016.

The multi-stakeholder feedback is now being compiled and considered. Resulting updates to the draft GRI Standards and the project’s next steps will be discussed in public GSSB meetings through the coming months.

To learn more, visit the Transition to Standards page, or watch the Transition to GRI Standards Webinar.






Consultation is now open for the future GSSB Work Program, which will guide GSSB work priorities from 2017-2019, following the launch of the GRI Standards.

All stakeholders are invited to review the draft Work Program and to provide relevant comments via the GRI consultation platform until 28 September 2016.
