The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to increase their co-operation on sustainability matters.

GRI has developed a widely used sustainability reporting framework ("G3.1", with work commenced on the fourth generation guidelines, "G4"). GRI also participated in the development of ISO 26000 Social Responsibility, published by the ISO in November 2010.

The MoU is intended to leverage the activities of the two organisations related to reporting and benchmarking by business and on sustainable development by sharing information on ISO standards and GRI programs, teaming up with other partners, participating in the development of new or revised documents, joint promotion and communication.
