Since 2006, UNEP Finance Initiative and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) have jointly coordinated a working group to pilot and review the draft versions of the GRI Financial Services Sector Supplement (Environmental and Social Performance).
s part of this piloting process, the working group has tested and reviewed the environmental and social performance indicators. During this process, the working group has succeeded in:
Refining the existing indicators
Reducing the number of indicators through eliminating overlaps with the G3 Guidelines
Developing technical guidance notes for all indicators in the Supplement
Undertaking research on relevant social topics for reporting in the financial sector and
developing respective new indicators
Merging the environmental and social indicator set into one Financial Services Sector Supplement
Adapting the Supplement to the structure of the G3 Guidelines
The revised Supplement including all these changes is now available for public comment until 10 January, 2008. The UNEP FI – GRI working group welcomes your feedback on the changes made.
