GRI: Reporting only what matters
GRI is an international independent organization that publishes CSR reporting guidelines.
The guidelines are split into general and specific standard disclosures. General disclosures mainly refer to the CSR strategy of the company as well as to its business model and governance profile. Specific disclosures directly relate to CSR topics like CO2 emissions, child labor, sustainable procurement, and so on. The specificity of GRI is that organizations can choose the topics to be reported according to their importance for the company and for the company’s stakeholders (impacted parties like clients, shareholders, local communities).
