Case studies

The GSO framework is updated by testing its criteria on GRI case studies. The GSO publishes the case studies and carries out soft monitoring of how the criteria can be applied in different environments and through a RI lifecycle. This information helps in refining and updating the criteria.

The table below offers a list of the case studies carried out by the GSO.
