Companies participating in GNI are independently assessed on their implementation of the GNI Principles and Implementation Guidelines.
The Assessment Process
Following the completion of the first round of assessments of GNI’s founding companies, in June 2014 the GNI Board voted to consolidate the assessment process in to a two-stage process:
1. Self reporting from the companies to GNI after one year of membership
2. An independent assessment of each company member held every two years coving both a process review and including the review of specific cases
Previously, the assessment process consisted of three phases:
GNI's Public Report on the 2015/16 Independent Company Assessments was released in July 2016. The full Public Report and supporting documents can be found here.
The Step-by-Step Guide to the GNI Assessment Process can be accessed here.
Only organizations accredited by GNI’s multi-stakeholder Board are eligible to conduct assessments of member companies. Accredited assessors must meet GNI’s publicly available independence and competency criteria.
