Updated GRI Standards are launched

GRI has just announced the launch of the updated GRI Standards  Tweet This!, including the revised Universal Standards and GRI’s first Sector Standard GRI 11: Oil and Gas Sector 2021.

With the revised Universal Standards, the GRI Standards are now the first and only global reporting standards which fully reflect due diligence expectations for sustainability impacts, including those regarding human rights, as set out by the UN and OECD.  The Universal Standards will enable consistent and comparable sustainability reporting to best position companies to respond to emerging regulatory requirements (for example, the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive).

The first Standard in GRI’s Sector Programme, GRI 11: Oil and Gas Sector 2021, responds to the need for consistent and complete reporting addressing the complexity of the sector’s transparency demands. It facilitates disclosure related to the impacts of the sector’s present-day operations and how oil and gas organisations support the transition to a low-carbon economy.
