How to link the GRI Standards with the SDGs

Helping organisations show SDGs progress in their sustainability reporting

An updated resource is now available to assist companies to report on progress in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the GRI Standards.  Tweet This!

The new document – Linking the SDGs and the GRI Standards – covers the 17 SDGs and maps them against the Standards and disclosures that apply for each. This makes it easier for organisations to use their reporting through the GRI Standards to assess how they impact the SDGs.

Globally, only the GRI Standards provide a complete set of standards that uniquely addresses all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainability reporters worldwide do not need to use any other sustainability framework for their report.

Revised to cover all new and updated GRI Standards, the document replaces a previous version from 2016 (which was part of the SDGs Compass).
It now includes:
GRI 207: Tax 2019,
GRI 403: Occupational Health & Safety 2018, and
GRI 303: Water & Effluents 2018

GRI has developed tools and initiatives that help enable a strong private sector role in measuring and achieving the SDGs. This includes the Business reporting on the SDGs resources, created in collaboration with UN Global Compact. Meanwhile, examples of corporate SDG reporting were launched in February.

Driving Corporate Action Towards Accomplishing the SDGs, a partnership led by GRI and Enel, continues this year. This project has involved online collaboration forums, to explore how to increase the SDGs contribution made by companies. The next stage will include regional events to develop new solutions and continue the dialogue.
