It provides a comprehensive overview of GRI’s achievements, performance and impacts over the past financial year, and outlines the organization’s global reach, strategic objectives, collaboration and partnerships, as well as supplying sustainability information and data relating to its core activities.

GRI has been building on the legacy of G4 in 2013-2014, through continued growth and support. Innovative programs have been expanded and developed, providing guidance for pioneer stakeholders and invaluable training for first-time reporters. Launch events around the globe have focused on making G4 as available as possible, while a host of services and resources ensure constant encouragement from GRI – and that GRI, in return, monitors and builds on the feedback it receives.

Changing landscape
As well as looking back on GRI’s year, the report also looks firmly to the future. As GRI’s Chief Executive Michael Meehan and Board of Directors Chairman Christianna Wood emphasize in their introduction: “It is clear that the global sustainability movement as a whole has arrived at a critical juncture. As an innovator in this field, GRI has a duty to adapt to this changing landscape in a way that continues to fulfil its vision of a sustainable global economy, where organizations understand, manage and communicate their economic, environmental, social, and governance impacts responsibly.”
