Inclusiveness and multi-stakeholder representation are foundational features of GRI, fundamental to form a global perspective and advance our mission towards sustainable development. This is thoroughly reflected in our governance structure: every year we renew our search for global representation and a broad range of perspectives to enable us to carry out our mission. 

By joining one of our governance bodies, you’ll have a solid platform in which to share your expertise and play a direct role in shaping the future of sustainability reporting.
 
​We are currently seeking senior individuals of integrity and high reputation to join the committees listed below for a term of 3 years, from 1 January 2018. The nomination period will be open from 1 May to 30 June 2017.  

The dedicated members in GRI’s governance bodies play an invaluable and active role in providing counsel and guidance to help GRI carry out its mission. For the past two decades, our governance bodies have helped us pioneer sustainability reporting, and to develop the world’s most trusted and widely used reporting guidance. More recently, GRI transitioned into a global standards-setting organization, launching its first set of Sustainability Reporting Standards. GRI’s governance bodies were instrumental in this endeavor.
