GRI signs MoU with Indonesia’s Ministry of National Development Planning

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has signed a collaboration agreement with the Indonesian Government that commits to support and provide the reporting frameworks for the country’s commitments to the UN’s SDGs.

The MoU marks the commitment of Indonesia’s Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS) in promoting the contribution of the private sector in achieving the 2030 Agenda, as part of their annual SDGs conference.

It includes commitments to:

  • Promote SDG reporting by publicly listed companies by using the GRI Standards, and encouraging use of GRI’s freely available SDG reporting tools
  • Public and private sector engagement to raise awareness of the contribution companies can make to the SDGs and highlight sustainable business practices

The GRI’s chief regional implementation officer Asthildur Hjaltadottir said: “We welcome that the Indonesian Government recognises the challenge presented by the SDGs, as demonstrated by this MoU between GRI and BAPPENAS.

“With sustainability reporting increasingly becoming the norm in Indonesia, I believe GRI can support an acceleration in private sector engagement, which has a crucial role in securing progress towards sustainable development.

“I am pleased the Indonesian Government has identified the need for widespread collaboration, as part of their SDGs National Action Plan. GRI looks forward to continuing to support Indonesian companies and institutions to understand their sustainability impacts and report their contributions for the SDGs.”
