Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the independent international organization, headquartered in Amsterdam with a presence around the world, that helps businesses, governments and other organizations understand and communicate their sustainability impacts.
The Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) vision is that reporting on economic, environmental, and social performance by all organizations becomes as routine and comparable as financial reporting. GRI accomplishes this vision by developing, continually improving, and building capacity around the use of its Sustainability Reporting Framework.
An international network of thousands from business, civil society, labor, and professional institutions create the content of the Reporting Framework in a consensus-seeking process.
