Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the world reference in sustainability reporting. Based on specific guidelines, it suggests an approach for all organizations that want to report on their performance in the area of sustainability. The approach has three objectives: comparability of data, transparency of information and accountability to stakeholders. In addition, the GRI produces sector supplements for certain specific business areas. In 2009, it published a supplement for electric utilities.

Since 2001, Hydro-Québec has been benchmarking its performance in the area of sustainability based on the GRI approach.

According to the GRI, Hydro-Québec’s Sustainability Report 2012 is compliant with G3.1 Application Level B+. More information on the GRI and its guidelines
