Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an international, multi-stakeholder and independent non-profit organization that promotes economic, environmental and social sustainability. The GRI was established in 1997 in partnership with the United Nations’ Environment Programme (UNEP).

The organization has developed Sustainability Reporting Guidelines that strive to increase the transparency and accountability of economic, environmental, and social performance and provides all companies and organizations with a comprehensive sustainability reporting framework that is widely used around the world.

Since 2016, the GRI guidelines also includes references to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

From reporting period 2014, TotalEnergies used the GRI G4 guidelines and reported in accordance with the Core level. In 2017, TotalEnergies adopted the GRI Standards and continued to report in accordance with the Core level.

TotalEnergies’ GRI index table is based on various sources of information, all produced by the Company: 2020 Universal Registration Document, 2020 Climate report, the Company corporate website, etc.
