About Ernst Ligteringen, Chief Executive of GRI
Before joining GRI, the Chief Executive had a 23-year career in various non-governmental and international organisations, including postings and missions in Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. His posts included Executive Director of Oxfam International, Director of Programme Coordination of the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and Consultant to the World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization at the ILO.
The GRI has pioneered the development of the world’s most widely used Sustainability Reporting Framework and is committed to its continuous improvement and application worldwide. This framework sets out the principles and indicators that organisations can use to measure and report their economic, environmental and social performance. GRI believes that the transition to a sustainable economy requires holistic management of financial, environmental, social and governance performance. Transparency through reporting on these factors drives the sustainability of individual organisations and, ultimately, the global economy.
GRI Focal Point Australia works to bring Australian organisations more actively into the broader international dialogue on environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosure and sustainability and seeks to improve the uptake, usefulness and quality of reporting.
