  • The Glossary contains defined terms with a specific meaning when used in the GRI Standards. The terms are underlined in the text of the GRI Standards and linked to the definitions.

Background on the topic:

This Standard addresses the topic of energy. An organization can consume energy in various forms, such as fuel, electricity, heating, cooling, or steam. Energy can be self-generated or purchased from external sources and it can come from renewable sources such as wind, hydro, or solar or from non-renewable sources such as coal, petroleum, or natural gas.

Using energy more efficiently and opting for renewable energy sources is essential for combating climate change and for lowering an organization’s overall environmental footprint. Energy consumption can also occur throughout the upstream and downstream activities connected with an organization’s operations. This can include consumers’ use of products the organization sells and the end-of-life

treatment of these products.
