The corporate social responsibility report is an assessment and communications tool that allows an organization to tell its stakeholders how it supports sustainability. Reporting focuses on three dimensions: economic, social and environmental sustainability. The Global Reporting Initiative network (GRI) has created corporate social responsibility reporting guidelines for this purpose, and it can be used by all organizations regardless of size, industry or geographical location. Reports composed in accordance with the GRI reporting framework can be used for a range of purposes:
comparing and evaluating an organization’s corporate social responsibility with regard to legislation, standards, regulations and voluntary initiatives
showing how an organization’s corporate social responsibility goals influence its operations and vice versa
comparing an organization’s operations with regard to its own and other organizations’ operations
