Translations of GRI 207: Tax 2019 increase global reach

​New translations of the GRI Tax Standard have been made available in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesian, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Launched in December 2019, GRI 207: Tax provides the first global, public reporting standard for tax transparency. The Tax Standard is freely available for use by any company as part of the GRI Standards, the world’s most widely used sustainability disclosure framework.

The commitment to deliver new translations of the GRI Standards further broadens the global relevance, accessibility and reach. Downloads of all GRI Standards rose by 44% in 2019 compared with the previous year – while for translations, the growth rate was even higher at 81%.

GRI Chief Executive Tim Mohin said:“The GRI Standards are used by thousands of organizations around the world, regardless of location, size or sector. By providing the Tax Standard in new language translations, we are increasing the number of companies that can use GRI 207 to disclose their tax practices in line with global best practice.”
