Some History of GRI

The GRI was formed by the United States-based non-profits Ceres (formerly the Coalition for Environmentally Responsible Economies) and Tellus Institute, with the support of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 1997.

It released an 'exposure draft' version of the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines in 1999[6], the first full version in 2000, the second version was released at the World Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg—where the organization and the guidelines were also referred to in the Plan of Implementation signed by all attending member states.

Later that year it became a permanent institution. In 2002 GRI moved its secretariat to Amsterdam,[7] Netherlands. Although the GRI is independent, it remains a collaborating centre of UNEP and works in cooperation with the United Nations Global Compact.

Also note that the above graphic may not be the one that was intended in the original preparation of this webpage!
