GRI – Global Reporting Initiative – is an international organisation under whose auspices a number of interest groups in society have drawn up global guidelines for how companies are to report on parameters covered by the concept of sustainable development.

Holmen and GRI

The purpose of GRI is to create uniformity in sustainability reporting and to make it easier to assess and compare companies from social, environmental and economic perspectives. Application of GRI guidelines is voluntary.

Holmen takes a positive view of GRI and has been following its guidelines for sustainability reporting since 2006. Up until the 2014 annual report, Holmen reported at GRI A+ level. As of the 2015 annual report, the guidelines in GRI G4 have been used at Core reporting level, and as of 2018, Holmen reports according to GRI Standards at the accounting level Core.

Holmens 2019 years sustainability report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. You find the full GRI-disclosure 2019 below.
