Why is GRI Reporting Declining in US and Growing in Canada?
With one month left to publish GRI reports in 2010, Canada is ahead but US is trailing behind GRI’s 2009 stats.
As I continue to track GRI reporting in Canada and the US, one half dozen GRI reports will need to be added to GRI’s spreadsheet for November 2010 (reporters listed below). The latest tally is summarized in this bar chart and shows some interesting results:
Canada produced 53 GRI reports by the end of November 2010. With another month to go, this already shows a nice increase in reporting compared to 40 reports recorded by GRI for 2009. Canada's growth spurt has been fueled by inaugural mining reports I blogged about here. In contrast, once updated, GRI’s list will only show about 130 GRI reports published by US-based organizations by November 2010. This compares to 139 reports recorded by GRI for the US during 2009.
