Global Reporting Initiative

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) was launched in 2000 and is used as a reference by thousands across the globe. The GRI allows comparison between companies, benchmarking and informed target setting. In addition to these guidelines, the GRI allows ‘sector supplements' which address the unique, detailed issues of particular sectors. We first used the GRI indicator to report on our company’s performance in 2005. In 2008, we sponsored the GRI in the formation of the Global Working Group to develop this ‘sector supplement’ and in September signed a Memorandum of Understanding with GRI to be the first company to commit to the process. For more information on the construction and real estate sector supplement and its development, visit the GRI website.

These results influence the investment decisions of asset managers in 19 countries, who work across a variety of sustainability-driven portfolios – including mutual funds, segregated accounts, structured products and an exchange-traded fund. We have been included on the Index every year since 2001.
