Case Study: Tackling Poverty in Developing Countries
Poverty and sustainable development are the prime focus of GRI’s program with the Swedish government. GRI works to raise awareness among local and global companies on poverty issues, and provides guidance to help companies identify their poverty impacts and increase the materiality of poverty-related business indicators. Through specialized trainings, GRI also helps civil society organizations, media, investors and policymakers understand and make use of the reported corporate data to stimulate action for positive change.
Working directly with governments around the world, GRI is contributing to advancing sustainable trade, investment and development in emerging countries, which will help lift millions of people out of poverty and reduce social and economic inequality.
