GRI is the Global Reporting Initiative
of the UN Enviroment Programme.
They have issued
a GRI Request For Proposals (RFP),
to be submitted by 27 March 2004.
Unfortunately, they do not have any funding to finance this work, and are looking for voluntary contributions.
"GRI is developing a globally applicable Framework for reporting an organisation's sustainability performance."
In other words, they are looking for a standard way to submit reports.It is not necessary that these
Reports have the same structure.
"There are three main elements to the overall Reporting Portal GRI is striving to create :-
1. A Central Reports Repository. (This is our a User-Extensible Data Dictionary).
2. A Reporting Wizard, (Our existing Wizard looks great and will provide guidance in submitting a Report).
3. A Centre for Information Exchange, with Best Practice and Tutorials."
Our Proposal will feature 'Flexibility' and a
working Online Prototype accessible over the Internet.
