The first King Report on Corporate Governance was released in 1994, introducing a comprehensive summary of corporate governance best practice which has become a global reference point. The King Report has been updated a number of times, with “King IV” being released in November 2016. Many of the King Report’s principles have been incorporated into the JSE’s listings requirements.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an independent international organisation, which has developed the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards. The GRI Standards are used by many of the world’s largest listed companies for reporting on their sustainability performance.
