Global Reporting Initiative

Carbon Disclosure Project Partner Companies are increasingly turning to 3rd-party reporting platforms to standardize reporting, measure progress, and benchmark performance relative to industry peers.

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) provides an industry-leading reporting platform that includes metrics and methods for measuring and reporting sustainability-related impacts and performance.

GRI is a holistic reporting framework designed for use by organizations of any size, sector, or location. It contains content based on a wide range of consensus-driven input from stakeholders around the word and considers environmental, social, and economic performance indicators.

  • GRI Kick-Off and Reporting Process Overview

    Altura begins by facilitating a kick-off meeting to provide an overview of the reporting process, standard and specific disclosures, and general reporting requirements.

    At this time, Altura helps define the following:

    • Report content
    • Timeline
    • Responsibilities
    • Material disclosures
    • Group-specific targets

  • Stakeholder Engagement

    Next, Altura facilitates the stakeholder engagement and data collection processes to develop report content. We also work with stakeholders to develop language that accurately represents corporate initiatives and achievements, while complying with the GRI reporting framework.

  • Drafting the Report

    Finally, Altura drafts report content, including narratives describing key sustainability initiatives and quantitative and qualitative charts and figures to represent data.

    Using the GRI reporting guidelines, the standard framework includes the following elements:

    • Strategy and analysis: strategic view of the company’s relationship to sustainability
    • Organizational profile: overview of brands, products, and/or services
    • Report parameters: reporting period, reporting cycle, scope and boundary, etc.
    • Governance, commitments, and engagement: definition of committees responsible for setting business strategy
    • Management approach and performance indicators: relationship between management approach and the economic, environmental, and social-performance indicators
