Event Details

The amount of waste that is generated globally is growing and affects the environment and human health. It is the result of our linear ‘take-make-waste’ approach to production and consumption. Much of waste generation could be prevented at the source if we had a more comprehensive understanding of what causes waste-related impacts. This would give organizations a basis for reporting and help them improve their waste management practices.

To support this, the Global Sustainability Standards Board, GRI’s independent standard-setting body, initiated a project to revise its waste disclosures. The resulting draft Standard, developed over the past six months by a multi-stakeholder project working group of experts, is now available for public review and comment until 15 July 2019. It follows internationally-agreed best practice and reflects latest developments in waste management and circular economy.

Join us to learn more about the Standard and have your say! 

Tell us if the draft Standard is clear and feasible to report on, and if it will deliver the valuable information you need to make sound assessments about an organization’s waste impacts and how it manages them through circularity.

Detailed information on the draft GRI Waste Standard and the Public Comment Period is availble here.
