Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

Die Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) ist ein Anbieter von Richtlinien für die Erstellung von Nachhaltigkeitsberichten von Großunternehmen, kleineren und mittleren Unternehmen (KMU), Regierungen und Nichtregierungsorganisationen. Die Grundlage einer Berichterstattung nach GRI ist Transparenz, ihr Ziel eine Standardisierung und Vergleichbarkeit.

Die GRI-Richtlinien sollen nachhaltige Entwicklung weltweit unterstützen und gleichzeitig Firmen, Regierungen, Investoren, Arbeitnehmern und einer interessierten Öffentlichkeit vergleichbare Entscheidungs- und Orientierungshilfen bieten. Sie sollen Unternehmen/Organisationen bei der Erstellung von Nachhaltigkeitsberichten mit einem freiwilligen Rahmen für die Berichterstattung unterstützen. Durch die Festschreibung bestimmter Kennzahlen und Indikatoren zu wirtschaftlichen, ökologischen und gesellschaftlichen Aspekten ihrer Tätigkeiten, Produkte und Dienstleistungen wird die Vergleichbarkeit der Berichte erhöht. Sie ergänzen damit das betriebliche bzw. institutionelle Nachhaltigkeitsmanagement und -controlling.

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

The Global Reporting Initiative (known as GRI) is an international independent standards organization that helps businesses, governments and other organizations understand and communicate their impacts on issues such as climate change, human rights and corruption.

Under increasing pressure from different stakeholder groups – such as governments, consumers and investors – to be more transparent about their environmental, economic and social impacts, many companies publish a sustainability report, also known as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) or environmental, social and governance (ESG) report. GRI’s framework for sustainability reporting helps companies identify, gather and report this information in a clear and comparable manner. First launched in 2000, GRI’s sustainability reporting framework is now the most widely used[1] by multinational organizations, governments, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), NGOs and industry groups in more than 90 countries.[2] In 2017, 63 percent of the largest 100 companies (N100), and 75 percent of the Global Fortune 250 (G250) reported applying the GRI reporting framework.[3]

The most recent of GRI’s reporting frameworks are the GRI Standards, launched in October 2016. Developed by the Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB), the GRI Standards are the first global standards for sustainability reporting and are a free public good.[4] In contrast to the earlier reporting frameworks, the GRI Standards have a modular structure, making them easier to update and adapt.[5]

Development of water consumption in m3

The high level of water consumption in production brings with it a corresponding volume of waste water. Compliance with the limit values from the Waste Water Ordinance is ensured by the indirect discharge permit. The daily control of the mixing and equalisation basin by our employees, as well as through the regular inspections by the responsible monitoring authorities, give us the necessary security.
