Short description: The “Global Reporting Initiative” is a large multi-stakeholder network of thousands of experts, in dozens of countries worldwide, who participate in GRI’s working groups and governance bodies, use the GRI Guidelines to report, access information in GRI-based reports, or contribute to develop the Reporting Framework in other ways – both formally and informally. Corporate Social Responsibility - CSR 
Long description: The GRI's vision is that reporting on economic, environmental, and social performance by all organizations is as routine and comparable as financial reporting. The GRI network accomplishes this vision by developing, continuously improving and building capacity around the use of a Sustainability Reporting Framework, the core of which are the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. Other components in the Reporting Framework are Sector Supplements and Protocols. This reporting guidance - in the form of principles and indicators - is provided as a free public good. To ensure the highest degree of technical quality, credibility, and relevance, the GRI Reporting Framework is developed and continuously improved through intensive multi-stakeholder engagement that involves reporting organizations and information seekers, who together develop and review content for the Reporting Framework. To-date, nearly 1000 organizations in over 60 countries have declared their use of the GRI Reporting Framework. The GRI is a collaborating centre of the United Nations Environment Programme.
