Milano – October 11th, 2019

In October 2019, SupplHi, the Vendor Management platform for industrial equipment and services joined the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) community. SupplHi is a member of the GRI Community and supports the mission of GRI to empower decision makers everywhere, through GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards and its multi-stakeholder network, to take action towards a more sustainable economy and world.

The GRI is an international independent Standards Organization that – since 1997 – helps businesses, governments and other organizations understand and communicate their impacts on issues such as climate change, human rights and corruption. GRI’s mission is to create conditions for the transparent and reliable exchange of sustainability information through the development and continuous improvement of its Sustainability Reporting Framework.

“SupplHi believes that the global standardization of sustainability reporting is key to identify and manage risks and to enable organizations to seize new opportunities. SupplHi is committed to stimulate the growth of Sustainability culture and practices among the Buyers and Vendors that leverage on SupplHi’s Vendor Management platform for industrial equipment and services.” said SupplHi’s Director Giacomo Franchini “In fact, the SupplHi platform covers all major aspects of ESG requirements, allowing Buyers to monitor the Sustainability performance of their suppliers’ base and Vendors to report according to global standards such as GRI and to know where to improve on their Sustainability practices.”

GRI has global strategic partnerships with the OECD, the UN Environment Programme and the UN Global Compact. Its Framework enjoys synergies with the guidance of the IFC, the ISO 26000, the UNCTAD, and the Earth Charter Initiative. GRI’s core product are the Sustainability Reporting Standards which are made available as a free public good. They have been continuously developed over 20 years and represent global best practice for reporting on economic, environmental and social issues.
