WHAT REPORTS CAN BE REGISTERED IN THE DATABASE?

Any type of sustainability, corporate responsibility, or integrated report can be registered in the Database provided it is publically available.

Reports tracked in the database include:


Type Description
GRI Reports Reports that make explicit reference to applying the GRI Standards (through relevant in accordance claims) or GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and contain a GRI Content Index (exceptional case being the GRI-Referenced reports).
Citing-GRI Reports

Reports that make specific reference to or use elements of GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (G4, G3.1 or G3) but do not include a GRI Content Index.

Also, those reports published after 1 July 2018 that refer to the G4 Guidelines will be classified on GRI’s Sustainability Disclosure Database as ‘Citing-GRI Reports’.

Non-GRI reports Reports that do not fall under the category of GRI-Standards reports; or any other type of sustainability, corporate responsibility, or integrated report that does not reference or use the GRI Framework. At the same time, these reports need to cover a wide range of sustainability topics by reporting on economic, environmental, and/or social impacts.
*The Database features reports that cover sustainability issues, including economic, environmental, social, and/or governance information. The reports can also be integrated, covering both sustainability and financial disclosures.
