This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers one of the reporting requirements of Indicator G4-EC1 – ‘Direct economic value generated and distributed’.
Information on the creation and distribution of economic value provides a basic indication of how the organization has created wealth for stakeholders. Several components of the economic value generated and distributed (EVG&D) also provide an economic profile of the organization, which may be useful for normalizing other performance figures. If presented in country-level detail, EVG&D can provide a useful picture of the direct monetary value added to local economies.
