Beyond Carbon, Beyond Reports
Climate change is a sustainability issue that entails more than concerns about carbon and energy. In order to address these issues organizations will need to do more than merely creating sustainability reports. Solving the climate challenge will involve concerted action by governments, international organizations, businesses, investors, civil society and citizens. GRI helps organizations manage the full range of climate risks so they can move beyond reports and take action.
Non-state actors including business have a vital role to play in addressing climate change. In order to act, businesses need to first understand their contribution to the problem. Since 1997, GRI has provided metrics on climate change and these disclosures are among the most frequently reported by organizations that use. GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards). GRI Standards provide a common language for organizations to measure, manage and communicate about their use of carbon, energy, water and a wide range of other resources.
