Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) (green)

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an international not-for-profit organisation, with a network-based structure. To enable all companies and organisations to report their economic, environmental, social and governance performance, GRI produces free Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The guidelines are currently in their fourth generation ("G4").

GRI was founded in the US in 1997 by CERES (a United States non-profit organisation) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and was originally based in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2002, GRI moved its central office to Amsterdam, where the Secretariat is currently located. GRI also has regional 'Focal Points' in Australia, Brazil, China, India and the USA.
