Verification of GRI Sustainability Reports

Add value to sustainable behaviour

The GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) is the leading international sustainability reports institute. Sustainability reports are documents in which organisations provide information on the economic, environmental and social aspects of their activities, products and services.

The independent verification carried out by AENOR proves that a sustainability report complies with the principles and directives specified by the GRI and that the information contained therein is accurate. Verification also improves the quality, usability and credibility of information and management processes.

Once the service has been provided and, if necessary, AENOR will deliver a document declaring the favourable result of the verification process.

Benefits for the organisation:

  • This document can be used to position a company within the market in connection with sustainability.
  • The GRI model is used, which is widely employed and recognised throughout the world.
  • It provides a credible way for companies to communicate their sustainability performance to interested parties (customers, suppliers, authorities, etc.).
  • It is employed in conjunction with a company's own management systems.

Once the AENOR verification process has been completed, the organisation obtains:

  • The AENOR Certificate of Verification for the Sustainability Report, which declares that the sustainability report complies with the principles and general guidelines included in the G3 guide on GRI.
  • Final Vertification Report.

AENOR is an Organisational Stakeholder of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which involves participation in the GRI, maintaining the integrity of its activity guidelines, and demonstrating its commitment to transparent communication and sustainable financial development.

AENOR has been verifying sustainability reports since 2001.
