About the Global Reporting Initiative
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a network-based organization that includes representatives from business, government, labor, third-party advocacy groups and academia. The GRI organization has developed a framework for sustainability reporting. Following the GRI sustainability framework advances two important objectives: transparency and the ability to compare results from one organization to another. 3M has developed its sustainability report using the Global Reporting Initiative’s G3 guidelines (established in 2006). The table below outlines where specific GRI reporting elements and indicators are addressed in the report. For more information on the Global Reporting Initiative please visit GRI's website (http://www.globalreporting.org/Home). GRI Application Levels The image below illustrates the GRI’s possible application levels under G3. 3M self declares its 2009 report as a “C” level report. 3M self declared its 2008 report as a “C+” level report. Environmental Resources Management (ERM) reviewed 3M’s 2008 Sustainability Report and procedures and provided an independent, third party assurance of the report. 3M’s 2006 Sustainability report was also 3rd party verified. For more information on 3M’s verification efforts please see Report Verification.
