The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an international framework for voluntary reporting of the economic, environmental and social impacts of company performance.
The table below indicates the areas of our report which cover the GRI 3 (the third generation of guidelines) and whether we have done this fully, in part or not at all. We believe that the Reed Elsevier CR Report represents a balanced and reasonable presentation of our company’s performance and have self declared our reporting level against the criteria in the GRI application levels as B.
Reports intended to qualify for level C, C+, B, B+, A or A+ must contain each of the criteria that are presented in the column for the relevant level.
