The non-financial, ESG, and sustainability reporting landscape is constantly evolving. Businesses reporting their sustainability performance can refer to or use a variety of international and national frameworks, standards and guidelines such as CDP, GRI, SASB, TCFD, DJSI and the SDGs (to name a few). Get the latest industry updates and learn more about the available sustainability and ESG frameworks and standards to support your company's reporting here.
Our team of industry professionals has put together this page which covers the difference between Frameworks and Standards, plus a summary of all the common ones, to help you make the right decision for your business needs.

GRI and SASB released 'A Practical Guide to Sustainability Reporting Using GRI and SASB Standards'. This guide shares the results of joint research from GRI and SASB, where they explore the experiences of companies that use the two sets of standards together to fulfil their reporting needs.
