The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has opened a new 'Focal Point' in South Africa, which is designed to act as a regional hub with the main aim of facilitating and promoting the active engagement of African organisations in the development of sustainability reporting regionally and globally.

The Focal Point will be hosted by ACCA South Africa (ACCA SA), and joins other Focal Points in Australia, Brazil, China, India and the United States.

To measure and monitor the success of GRI’s presence in South Africa and to show how the application of the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework contributes to changes in companies’ sustainability reporting and performance, GRI will conduct a baseline study from the start of January 2013 to June 2015.
