Discover the GRI Standards

The GRI Standards represent the global best practice in sustainability reporting. They are designed to be used as a set by organizations to report about their impacts on the economy, the environment, and society.

The GRI Standards contain all of the main content and disclosures from the G4 Guidelines - no new topics have been added. Impacts on the reporting process will be minimal for existing G4 reporters. Any changes to the structure of the content are explicitly described in the ‘Mapping G4 to the GRI Standards’ tool below.

The modular structure of the Standards is flexible, and the new format gives reporters clear distinctions between reporting requirements, recommendations and guidance. Key concepts are also clearly defined, making the Standards accessible for new reporters.

The resources and tools below – including introductory information, sector guidance, mapping documents and training programs – provide support for new and existing reporters using the GRI Standards.
