This Standard is part of the set of GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards). These Standards are designed to be used by organizations to report about their impacts on the economy, the environment, and society. The methodology for the former G4 standard for this metric relating to habitats protected and restored (G4-EN13-a) can be found here.

In the context of the GRI Standards, the environmental dimension of sustainability concerns an organization’s impacts on living and non-living natural systems, including land, air, water, and ecosystems. GRI 304 addresses the topic of biodiversity.

Protecting biological diversity is important for ensuring the survival of plant and animal species, genetic diversity, and natural ecosystems. In addition, natural ecosystems provide clean water and air, and contribute to food security and human health. Biodiversity also contributes directly to local livelihoods, making it essential for achieving poverty reduction, and thus sustainable development.

These concepts are covered in key instruments of the United Nations: see References. The disclosures in this Standard can provide information about an organization’s impacts related to biodiversity, and how it manages them.


To answer this metric you need to find the "Total number of employees" (GRI 304-3-a). Start by searching publicly available documents like Annual and CSR reports.
