Reporting standards: GRI

The Global Reporting Initiative tries to set a standard for business reporting about sustainability results. It is already adapted by many companies.

The global reporting initiative serves as a good way to compare companies on how they perform on sustainability issues. What I like about GRI reports, is that you can clearly see what improvements companies are making, for example expressed in emission impact, but it's also a good tool to see within a company how well you are doing and where you can find more ways to improve.

Thank you Arjan. I think GRI would be an essential part of the process of identifying the most sustainable corporations. Here's a bit more from the US part of their website - - "According to research, more than 75% of the top 100 companies in the United States report on their corporate responsibility performance . There are three key drivers behind this statistic: ethical considerations, economic considerations, and innovation and learning."
