You can download the Report online

The report highlights the growth GRI has achieved over the last report period, with a 21% increase in staff members enabling us to work more intensively on core areas, such as our recent transition from sustainability reporting guidelines to standards, and our important outreach in the policy and corporate spheres.

“We have entered a new era where the need for transparency and disclosure to address global sustainability challenges has never been more real and urgent,” explained Christianna Wood, Chairman of the Board of Directors, GRI. “GRI and its Board have a responsibility to lead this shift which we believe will support the transformational change needed to build a sustainable global economy.”
