Global Reporting Initiative
— it is an international independent organization that promotes environmental, social, and economic sustainability through non-financial reporting. The initiative has developed standards used by businesses, NGOs, and even governments around the world to produce sustainable reports. GRI reporting helps organizations understand their external influences, as well as share this knowledge with stakeholders. While the availability of annual non-financial statements is a requirement for working with many investors, creditors, and international companies, GRI Standards are becoming the common reporting language.
