The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has announced the availability of four translations of its Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, dubbed 'G4'. Translation of the G4 Guidelines into various different languages is aimed at making them accessible to a global audience and thus mainstreaming sustainability reporting.

In its translation process of the G4 Guidelines published in English in May 2013, GRI prioritised five core languages - French, Spanish, Portuguese, German and Chinese (forthcoming) – as it estimated that with these the needs of approximately 75 per cent of current reporters and report users could be met. In a second step, GRI intended to cover Arabic, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Bahasa-Indonesian. These will be available between January and April 2014 together with additional translations into Vietnamese, Croatian and Turkish.

The translations available so far can be accessed through the press release on the GRI website.
