Greenstone software completes GRI Standards certification

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. 

The new Standards were announced by the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) in October 2016 and were officially launched in a series of global events. 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).
