The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has released a draft eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) taxonomy which incorporates changes to reflect its recently issued 'G4' sustainability reporting guidelines.

The draft taxonomy is designed to allow entities preparing sustainability reporting in accordance with the GRI's 'G4' Guidelines to tag sustainability data in reports. It builds on an earlier taxonomy which was developed in collaboration with Deloitte Netherlands, who are also collaborating with GRI on the revisions proposed.

The taxonomy is open for comment until 25 October 2013 and the GRI has scheduled a webinar to discuss it on 4 October 2013.
