The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) "has pioneered the development of the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework and is committed to its continuous improvement and application worldwide. This framework sets out the principles and indicators that organizations can use to measure and report their economic, environmental, and social performance." [1]


"Grants that currently support GRI include those from the Netherlands, European Commission, United Kingdom Sweden, Germany and Australia.

"Past and present foundations that have provided support include: Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, UN Foundation, World Bank, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Spencer T. and Ann W. Olin Foundation, United States Environment Protection Agency, V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation, and the Soros Foundation." [2]
