Coming soon: updated Waste Standard

​‘GRI 306: Waste 2020’ passes approval stages and will be available in May  Tweet This!

A new version of GRI’s Waste Standard is approaching publication, after receiving approval from GRI’s Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) and sign off by the Due Process Oversight Committee.

With a focus on enabling organizations to embrace circularity by fully understanding and disclosing all waste-related impacts, GRI 306: Waste 2020 is set to publish on 19 May. From this point on it will be freely available for any organization around the world to use to understand and disclose their waste impacts.

A two-year project to review and update GRI 306 to ensure it reflects current international best practice for waste management and reporting is almost complete. The revised Standard was developed by an independent and multi-stakeholder Project Working Group and underwent a global public comment period in 2019.

Further background can be found in the  project proposal for the review of GRI waste disclosures.

Stay tuned for more details, information and resources when GRI launches the revised Standard in May. This will include a schedule of live webinars, which will be available to all those with an interest in GRI 306: 2020.

In the meantime, if you have questions please contact waste@globalreporting.org.
