Dear friends and colleagues,

Today I stepped down from my position as Chief Executive of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) after nearly four years.  GRI is a unique institution that has a rich history of driving impact across the world, and that will continue. It is time for me to take the next great leap and to make way for new leaders to take GRI into its next phase.

Millions of lives have been improved due to the virtuous cycle of transparency and improvement fueled by GRI. Companies manage what they measure and GRI provides them with the needed structure and accountability.

I am very proud of our accomplishments in the last four years: new and revised standards, higher than ever adoption and downloads of the standards, new mandates incorporating GRI, growing our staff and global presence and new collaborations with partner organizations. GRI is stronger than ever.

It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to collaborate with the GRI team and the entire sustainability disclosure community. I look forward to working together as our journey continues and our pathways and purpose collide, on our common quest to create a better world.

Please reach out and stay in touch!

Tim
