Global Reporting Initiative

Global Reporting Initiative

In February 2015, Aurecon became the first global engineering and infrastructure advisory firm to join the stakeholder programme of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) – the GRI Gold Community. The GRI is an international independent organisation that sets corporate sustainability reporting standards. These standards are designed to empower decision-making that assists organisations deliver on their sustainability commitments.

Our commitment to the Global Reporting Initiative enables us to:

  • Measure our sustainability performance against world class standards
  • Communicate our results through systematic reporting
  • Work towards improving our impact on the environment, society and the economy
  • Help shape the future of global sustainability standards and reporting

Alongside improving our performance, as a Gold Community Member of the GRI we help to shape how other companies report on their initiatives by contributing our knowledge, skills and stories around how we apply our sustainable business philosophy.

What might be too hard for one individual or one company, becomes do-able when we join forces with others. That's why in the sustainability space, caring for our planet and our common future means sharing... resources... ideas... initiatives... and good practice.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not." (Dr Seuss)

There are many organisations who “care a whole awful lot".

We want to work with them towards a future we can be proud of.
