Earth Charter International (ECI) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), have been collaborating since 2008. This collaboration has been very fruitful for both initiatives, therefore, and in the framework of the 10th anniversary of the Earth Charter, ECI and GRI signed a Memorandum of Understanding.
In this MoU, both initiatives recognize their common mission of raising awareness about sustainable development, and inspiring and enabling as many people as possible everywhere to play an active role in creating a better future.
The objective of this new MoU is to create an environment where there is a broad-based increase in sustainability reporting around the world using the GRI framework, inspired and driven by an ever deeper understanding of the principles and considerations set out in the Earth Charter.
Within the framework of the Programme of Cooperation, recognizing the complementary nature of their respective missions, both organizations will take appropriate opportunities to support and complement each other’s work and encourage its use as part of a comprehensive approach to responding to the challenges of moving towards a just and sustainable future.
