Get started with reporting
The GRI Standards help organizations understand their outward impacts on the economy, environment, and society, including those on human rights. This increases accountability and enhances transparency on their contribution to sustainable development.
The GRI Standards are a modular system comprised of three series of Standards to be used together: Universal Standards, Sector Standards, and Topic Standards.
Organizations can either use the GRI Standards to prepare a sustainability report in accordance with the Standards or use selected Standards, or parts of their content, to report information for specific users or purposes, such as reporting their climate change impacts for their investors and consumers.
GRI 1: Foundation 2021 (a revised version of GRI 101: Foundation) is the starting point for all reporting. GRI 1 takes organizations through the entire reporting process and gives detailed guidance on how to use the Standards.
