Waste reporting disclosures being developed by GRI
May 1, 2019 /3BL Media/ - In the face of a growing global waste crisis, new corporate reporting disclosures are being developed by GRI to help organizations better understand and communicate their waste impacts.
International recognition of the need for action on waste is increasing. The scale of the issue – from the effect of plastics in marine ecosystems to the mounting disconnect between food waste generation and global hunger – illustrate why businesses and other organizations need to play their part by improving waste management practices.
Additional French translations of the GRI Standards, the world's most widely adopted sustainability reporting framework, are now available.
The recently updated versions of two Standards - ‘GRI 303: Water and Effluents 2018’ and ‘GRI 403: Occupational Health and Safety 2018’ – have been published in French and can be accessed by any French-speaking organization using the GRI Standards.
March 28, 2019 /3BL Media/ - More than 500 businesses in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are being supported to report on their sustainability impacts following the launch of new guidance.
GRI has provided technical input to guides produced by the Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) and the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE), which they will share with all their listed companies, providing recommendations on best practice for sustainability reporting.
Global Reporting Initiative are delighted that we can now offer the latest GRI Standards in Spanish. Organizations who report in Spanish can download GRI 303: Agua y efluentes 2018 and GRI 403: Salud y seguridad en el trabajo 2018 on the GRI website.
GRI and the United Nations Global Compact have announced their continued partnership to develop best practices for corporate reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), empowering businesses to prioritize SDG targets and measure and report on progress.
