The latest addition to CoreFiling’s Yeti® taxonomy exploration environment is the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative™) Taxonomy 2013, launched on 7th November.

Developed in association with Deloitte, the GRI Taxonomy 2013 is designed to allow companies to begin producing sustainability reports in XBRL in accordance with the G4 guidelines.  The GRI aims to promote a more sustainable worldwide economy, with particular focus on ethical behaviour, social justice and environmental care.

Although sustainability reporting in XBRL has not yet been mandated, the GRI has launched a Voluntary Filing Programme (see: https://www.globalreporting.org/reporting/reporting-support/xbrl/Pages/Voluntary-Filing-Program.aspx) to encourage organisations to begin creating XBRL disclosures that investors and other stakeholders can then review and compare.

In support of this initiative, Yeti lets users gain an insight into the new taxonomy by presenting the underlying concepts simply and clearly.  Even beginners will appreciate the intuitive navigation assistance and powerful search facilities, which make it easy to drill down into the detail and to find particular concepts.
