This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers part of the information required by G4-EN32 - 'Percentage of new suppliers that were screened using environmental criteria'.

This Indicator informs stakeholders about the percentage of suppliers selected or contracted subject to environmental due diligence processes. Due diligence should be initiated as early as possible in the development of a new relationship with a supplier.

Significant potential negative environmental impacts may be prevented or mitigated at the stage of structuring contracts or other agreements.


This metric is looking for percentage of new suppliers were screened using environmental criteria:

For WikiRate researchers:

Companies who align reports to GRI’s Sustainability Reporting Standards often include a GRI Content Index or Annex where GRI disclosures, with GRI codes, are listed.

  • Use the GRI Index, CTRL F, Command F or search button on source preview to search for this index and metrics within the report

  • Use G4 codes, G3 codes or keywords to quickly find values, keeping in mind that some companies report on the metric using different terms, e.g. G4-EN32 or EN32, suppliers or environmental criteria

  • Always check the metric question and methodology for the unit of measure or currency - researchers may need to carry out calculations or conversions before entering the final metric value

  • Add comments documenting exactly where within the source you found the information (page number) and include details of simple or complex calculations or conversions made to determine the metric value

  • If you are unable to locate a metric value in a source you can search for additional sources where the data is available and add a new source

Further guidance on how to research values for GRI-based metrics is available here, including detailed guidance on adding, editing and Checking metric values.

Global Reporting Initiative compliance guidance for companies:

To calculate the percentage of new suppliers that were screened using environmental criteria - G4-EN32-a:

  • Identify the total number of new suppliers that the organization considered selecting or contracting with.

  • Identify the total number of new suppliers that were screened using environmental criteria.

  • Environmental criteria may include the Aspects under the Environmental Category.
