Sustainability Reporting Standards: GRI, DNK, ESRS

There are various sustainability reporting standards and frameworks that companies can use to measure, communicate, and improve their sustainability performance.RITTWEGER and TEAM provide consulting services regarding the following sustainability reporting standards:


  • The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a widely recognized standard for sustainability reporting. It provides guidelines and indicators for companies to report their economic, environmental, social, and governance aspects. In our team, we have a GRI Certified Sustainability Professional who has supported the official peer review of GRI translations into German.
  • The German Sustainability Code (DNK) is a German standard aimed at integrating sustainability aspects into corporate governance. Specific indicators are defined for companies to report, explaining and making transparent their contributions to sustainability.
  • The EU Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requires large companies to disclose enhanced and standardized sustainability information according to the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). Its aim is to improve the transparency of companies regarding environmental, social, and governance aspects.
