Global Reporting Initiative Linkages and Stakeholder Engagement

PG&E is committed to continuous improvement when it comes to how we report our impacts and sustainable business strategies. The table below shows how this report aligns with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Performance Indicators, which we use as an important guide and reference point. While we are working toward meeting the GRI reporting protocols, for several indicators below, we currently only partially meet the recommended standard.

In developing and writing our Fourth Annual Corporate Responsibility Report, PG&E engaged with Ceres and a team of external stakeholders, which was selected by Ceres1. The Ceres stakeholder team is an independent group of individuals drawn primarily from the Ceres coalition and represents a range of constituencies that have expertise in environmental, social and governance issues. In reviewing this report, the team considered whether the company adequately reported on its sustainability performance and key impacts, including goals, targets, systems, data and initiatives. Through this review process, the Ceres stakeholder team provided extensive feedback to PG&E, which was considered in the preparation of the final version of this report.
