We are currently liaising with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) with the aim of becoming a member of the GRI GOLD Community.

The GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards are considered the global pre-eminent sustainability reporting framework.[1] They provide a relevant and standardized approach to reporting, with the degree of transparency and consistency required to make such information useful and credible. Indeed, KPMG noted in 2013 that 78% of 4,100 companies worldwide “refer to the GRI reporting guidelines in their [Corporate Responsibility] reports.”[2]

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, would like to book a course, or if you would like Sustainability Solutions to tailor a bespoke training program to build a culture of integrity in your organisation.
