Shape the future direction of the global leader in sustainability standard-setting

GRI, provider of the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework, has launched a global search to find new members for its decision making and advisory functions.

GRI’s independent, multi-stakeholder approach sets us apart from other standard setters. That is why we are seeking the broadest societal participation in our governance, so that we are inclusive and representative across sectors and geographic boundaries.

Therefore, any individual of high integrity and relevant experience is invited to apply to the join one of the following five bodies:
  • GRI Board of Directors: the final decision-making authority for GRI’s governance and long-term strategy
  • Stakeholder Council: the multi-stakeholder forum that advises the Board on strategic issues and business planning
  • Global Sustainability Standards Board: the independent entity with sole responsibility for developing and implementing the GRI Standards
  • Due Process Oversight Committee: the independent body ensuring the integrity of all activities related to the setting of the GRI Standards
  • Independent Appointments Committee: the decision maker for the membership of GRI’s standard-setting bodies
GRI encourages all our stakeholders worldwide to review the opportunities to get involved and spread the word as widely as possible.

Tim Mohin, GRI chief executive, said:

“Multi-stakeholder governance is the lifeblood of GRI. We depend on the diversity of their expertise and perspective to align on the global best practice in environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosures. This approach is crucial for GRI’s mission, which empowers decisions that create social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone.

We seek individuals from diverse backgrounds and regions who can apply their unique experiences and perspectives to inform GRI’s decision making and future direction.”
