How we are funded

GRI is not tied to any one majority interest or funder, which means our funding model allows us to set truly independent reporting standards. The majority of GRI’s funding come from commercial services, events, corporate engagements and memberships, while around 40% is provided by program grants from governments and foundations.

Our strategic partnerships with governmental and institutional funders support programs that empower companies, promote fair and responsible value chains, and create a more inclusive world economy through the practice of sustainability reporting.

Support the Standards

In 2020, we launched the GRI Global Standards Fund – an initiative to bring together foundations, governments, private sector organizations and individuals who all want to see companies integrate transparency at the core of their operations
