Description The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is nonprofit that has introduced standardized language and metrics across the globe for sustainability reporting. GRI reports are published to the Web and are submitted there for review and transparent reporting.

The Department of Ecology encourages businesses across the state to lead the way in sustainable operations. Ecology is mandated to ask businesses to prepare pollution prevention plans, set goals, measure their successes and report their progress on a regular basis. There is a strong sense that in order to be an environmental leader in Washington State, “to walk our talk” so to speak, that we help to lead the way and do what we are asking others to do. By transparently modeling sustainable behavior, we can help other organizations learn from our experiences. GRI is a tool that can be used by any organization in Washington.

The completion of the Department of Ecology’s first Global Reporting Initiative Plan in 2012 represents a crucial step forward in our work. We hope that you find it informative.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
