The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have announced a Memorandum of Understanding forming a partnership which aims to give companies greater guidance and support on how to conduct their business responsibly and report on their sustainability performance.

The partnership is designed to help companies make greater use of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework, with the objective of bringing increased coherence and consistency to their efforts to act more responsibly and be more transparent about their sustainability.

The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework are based on and promote the same internationally agreed standards and principles for responsible business conduct, including social and human rights and economic and environmental matters. The GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework provides guidance on how to measure sustainability performance and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises provides a benchmark to assess such performance.
