GRI launches NGO disclosure tool

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has launched a non-governmental organisation (NGO) sector supplement to enable non-profit organisations measure and publicly disclose their economic, social and environmental performance indicators.

The GRI said the sector supplement was developed due to demand for NGOs to be transparent and accountable.

The NGO sector supplement includes guidance on:

  • Affected stakeholder engagement;
  • Programme effectiveness;
  • Gender and diversity;
  • Public awareness and advocacy;
  • Co-ordination;
  • Resource allocation;
  • Ethical fundraising;
  • Labour/management; and,
  • Corruption Prevention.

Previously there were no NGO-specific themes covered in GRI guidelines.

The supplement was created by a multi-stakeholder working group that incorporated feedback from 160 experts in partnership with the GRI.

World Vision International’s director for global accountability Beris Gwynne said the partnership with GRI has allowed NGOs to compare their accountability initiatives with best practice in other sectors.

“In demonstrating their own accountability, NGOs need to show that they use at least the same standards that they ask of others,” he added.
