Sustainability Reporting

Sustainability Reporting enables an organisation to identify, measure and monitor its sustainability risks and opportunities. It is a key platform for communicating sustainability performance and impacts – whether positive or negative. A Sustainability Report also presents an organisation's values and governance model, and demonstrates the link between its strategy and its commitment to a sustainable global economy.

GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) has been a pioneer in Sustainability Reporting since its inception in 1997. Today, the guidelines is followed by industries across the globe. More than 12,000 organisations have referenced the guidelines in their Sustainability Reports. Considering the changing business landscape, GRI over the years has improvised and graduated from guidelines to recently launched GRI Standards.
