Social Reporting Using GRI Disclosures: A Case of Apparel Industry Aswini Yadlapalli and Shams Rahman Abstract In recent times, social responsibility has emerged as one of the critical issues for corporations globally. The importance given to social responsibility and sustainability in corporate board rooms is noticeable through sustainable reporting. One such reporting system is to report through the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework. The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of the GRI framework and investigate the social reporting of apparel fi rms in the global con- text. Using a sample of 37 global apparel fi rms from the sustainability disclosure database who report GRI, a content analysis is performed and measured the level of fi rms social disclosures. Results indicate that out of the four sub-categories of social disclosures, labour practices and decent work, and human rights are the most disclosed social sub-categories, whereas the society sub-category is least disclosed among apparel fi rms. Furthermore, the large fi rms are likely to publish sustain- ability reports compared to the small and medium enterprises. However, the size of the fi rm does not impact the level of social disclosure. Though the fi rms in the European region are more likely to publish sustainability reports compared to fi rms located in other regions, however, the level of their social disclosures are com- paratively low. Keywords Labour practices ± Social reporting ± GRI ± Human rights ± Apparel fi rms ± Sustainability disclosure ± Working conditions 1 Introduction In 1990s, several high-pro fi le apparel fi rms were involved in a number of sweatshop scandals, and in 2010s, several major incidents such as collapse of Rana Plaza and fi re in Ali garment facilities and Tazreen Fashions have highlighted the social, safety, and employment issues at apparel manufacturing facilities (Moore et al. 2012 ).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
