Greenstone’s non-financial reporting software is one of the first software tools to complete the certification for the implementation of the new GRI Standards content.

Developed by the Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB), the GRI Standards aim to build on the previous GRI G4 framework to help companies around the world be more transparent in all areas of sustainability and to help organisations contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
