Did you know?

  • The database is visited over 10,000 times each month by a wide range of global stakeholders!
  • Adding a report is FREE and simple!

NOTE that registering your sustainability report in the Database does not mean that you have notified GRI of the use of the Standards. To fulfil the requirement under the clause 3.4 of the GRI 101: Foundation Standards, you need use the GRI Standards Report Registration System. If you have questions about this process, please contact the GRI Standards Division at ReportRegistration@globalreporting.org


This icon refers only to those GRI-Standards reports submitted and verified either through the GRI Standards Report Registration System or the Registration Form. All reports and their self-declared claims of the GRI Standards use have been submitted and verified either by a representative of the reporting organization or by a 3rd party authorized by the reporting organization to do the notification on their behalf. GRI and the GSSB do not check the accuracy or content of the material and its claim.

HOW TO REGISTER YOUR REPORT?

REGISTER A GRI STANDARDS REPORT:

Use the GRI Standards Report Registration System to register information reported using the GRI Standards. The specially designed registration system notifies GRI of the use of the GRI Standards in your report, which is a mandatory step of the GRI reporting process.

Our Guide to Registering a GRI Standards Report gives all the information you need on registering information reported using the GRI Standards.

REGISTER A NON-STANDARDS REPORT (E.G. NON-GRI, CITING-GRI):

If you've prepared a sustainability report, corporate social responsibility report, or integrated report that does not make use of the GRI Standards, you can still register your report in the GRI Sustainability Disclosure Database. The registration process for non-GRI Standards reports is different and there are two ways to do this:

GRI Data Partners cover most countries and have been registering substantial part of reports that are available on the GRI Sustainability Disclosures Database. These organizations are pivotal in helping the reporting organizations add their non-Standards reports to the database and in capturing new and relevant sustainability reporting information worldwide.

HOW TO EDIT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR ORGANIZATION & REPORT ONCE THEY HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE DATABASE?

Once your report has been added to the Database, an Organization profile page and a Report profile page are created. Two designated contacts from your organization can then update or add information.

Click here to find out how the designated contacts can manage/add additional data to the Report and Organization Profile Pages in the Sustainability Disclosure Database.

If you are one of the designated contacts from your organization, log in here. You can then access your Database profiles through your Account area.

If you are not yet a designated first or second contact, but you should be, send a request to GRI and GRI will update your account information.

WHAT REPORTS CAN BE REGISTERED IN THE DATABASE?
