07 Feb 2014

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has released updates relating to its G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines.

The GRI has announced the availability of a new Content Index Tool which will create customised Content Index templates based on a reporter’s preferences. Also, a new G4 brochure has been developed to guide new reporters on sustainability reporting and the GRI. For more information, see the press release on the GRI website.

In addition, the GRI has developed linkage documents that align the guidance between G4 and other internationally-recognised frameworks. The linkage documents are:

Additional linkage documents are currently under development. For more information, see the press release on the GRI website.

The GRI has also developed “Sector Disclosures” documents which transition G3 and G3.1 Sector Supplements to be compatible with G4. Currently, Sector Disclosures are available for the following sectors: (1) financial services, (2) oil and gas, (3) mining and metals, and (4) electric utilities. It is expected that six additional Sector Disclosures on airport operators, construction and real estate, event organisers, food processing, media, and NGO will be completed by the end of February. For more information, see the press release on the GRI website.

Further, the GRI has initiated a G4 XBRL Reports Program to promote the benefits of the GRI Taxonomy 2013, increase the interest in its voluntary filing program, and provide examples of XBRL-tagged reports. For more information, see the press release on the GRI website.
