GRI Standards

Overview of GRI Standards

The GRI Standards represent global best practice for reporting publicly on a range of economic, environmental and social impacts. Sustainability reporting based on the Standards provides information about an organization's positive or negative contributions to sustainable development. The standards are organised in universal standards and topic-specific standards and contain disclosures and the lower-level requirements for disclosures.
