Translations of the GRI Standards
Translations of the GRI Standards ensure that the first global standards for sustainability reporting are accessible for a diverse global audience.
Below you can access available translations of the GRI Standards. You can also review the upcoming translation schedule, or learn more about supporting future translation work.
To ensure that high quality GRI Standard translations are available in a timely manner, GRI is coordinating a process, which includes:
- A professional translation agency/ies to maintain a high standard across all translations and ensure efficiency;
- A committee of up to four diverse peer reviewers per translation (on a pro bono basis) to help guarantee accuracy and usability of the translations.
The translation process will take 24 weeks in total for each language. The current status of these translation projects is as follows:
