Our first GRI report covers Ecology's 2012 fiscal year (July 1, 2011 thru June 30, 2012). Some of the report data is for calendar year 2011 (January 1, 2011 thru December 31, 2011) due to current record-keeping practices. The report period represents half of the biennial fiscal period. We plan to produce updated GRI reports every other year (biennially).

Process for defining report content:
This report encompasses the ten environmental programs within Ecology as well as the Administration Program. Ecology staff collected and compiled the data and wrote the report. All information contained in this report has been reviewed and verified with management. The director of Ecology has been a key player and significant proponent on adopting the tenets and principles of GRI within the department.
Ecology expects the following interested stakeholders may make use of this report:
The report boundary is geographically limited to the State of Washington and covers all operations of the agency originating from its headquarters, regional, and field offices. The boundary does not encompass activities of other entities funded with pass through funds (grants and loans) from Ecology’s Capital Budget.
Ecology outsourced some support services and consulting work under two categories in calendar year (CY) 2011: personal and purchased services contracts. These represent approximately 15 percent (five and ten percent respectively) of the total agency expenditures excluding grants.
The report boundary also generally does not include vendors or suppliers, although Ecology does have policies in place and is working on this as an area for ongoing improvement.
GRI is an excellent sustainability prioritization tool since it allows you to track performance across all sustainability aspects that your organization has deemed relevant.
