The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has released information suggesting that more companies are having their sustainability reports assured, which is considered to result in more accurate and trustworthy data.

GRI provides a comprehensive framework for producing sustainability reports, designed to allow entities to assess their sustainability performance and disclose the results in a similar way to financial reporting.

According to statistics collected by GRI for 1 January to 31 December 2010, almost half of all sustainability reports globally are being assured. The proportion of sustainability reports being assured increased from 45 percent (510) in 2009 to 47 percent (664) in 2010.
