CDP, DJSI, GRI, GRESB, SASB. It's confusing enough to know these acronyms, let alone understand how these sustainability reporting standards actually work.

CDP and DJSI are considered to be the most credible and familiar reporting frameworks by sustainability experts, according to a recent GlobeScan/SustainAbility survey. GRESB is one of the fastest growing, industry-specific standards, as well as Measurabl's first commercial reporting solution. GRI is a household name in the CSR world and SASB soon will be one in the financial reporting world. All five frameworks provide a representation of the flavors of sustainability reporting, both industry-specific and industry-agnostic, integrated and non-integrated.

Here's a chart to help you navigate the "who, what, how and when" of some of the world's top reporting frameworks at a glance. Enjoy! (Click for full scale.)
