GRI launches extensive review

Following the successful launch of the GRI Standards, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)’s standards board has outlined its high-level priority areas for the next three years, including supporting the implementation of the Standards, developing sector specific guidance, and updating Standards on a regular basis.

The first two Standards scheduled for review are GRI 303: Water and GRI 403: Occupational Health and Safety.

Later in 2017 the Standards Division also expects to start discussions to update GRI 201 Economic Performance and GRI 306: Effluents and Waste, as well as human rights related Standards.

In addition, GRI will monitor developments  related to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), whose recommendations to the G20 are set to launch next week.
