The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is developing new guidelines for sustainability reporting and your input is crucial. By filling out the GRI survey you can be part of the development process for the next generation of guidelines.
GRI’s goal is to create a platform to mainstream sustainability reporting practices. In order to make sustainability reporting a common practice, it is important to understand what information should be provided.
The Guidelines are being developed through a process of systematic, consensus-seeking dialogue with a large network of individuals from over 60 countries and are they are updated periodically.
The next generation of Guidelines – G4 – will build on G3.1, the most comprehensive sustainability reporting guidance available today. The survey will help GRI to shape the scope and structure of G4.
One of the key issues being considered in the survey involves determining what emerging sustainability issues should be covered in the Guidelines.
The survey is available in English, Portuguese, Mandarin Chinese, French, and Spanish. It takes between 20 and 70 minutes to complete. You can only give feedback in one sitting, and your answers will count even if you do not complete the survey.
