GRI’s mission to empower decisions that create social, environmental and economic benefits for everyone, can only be fulfilled if everyone is represented. That is why multi-stakeholder representation is at the core of all of our activities, and our governance. And to make this inclusiveness more tangible, there is a yearly opportunity for different constituencies to become part of our governance bodies.
Members of these governance bodies are experts in their field who are also deeply interested in shaping the future of sustainability reporting.
GRI to issue Sustainability Reporting Standards developed and approved by the Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB).
Today GRI revealed a new governance structure which will reinforce its commitment to providing robust global standards for sustainability reporting. Building on the success of the GRI Guidelines, which to date have been used by over 5,000 organizations across more than 90 countries, the new governance structure recognizes the importance of standard-setting being a public interest activity. It is designed to further strengthen the independence of GRI’s standard-setting activities, whilst upholding the organization’s unique global multi-stakeholder principle.
