GRI 306: Waste 2020 is launched
We are pleased to announce the launch of GRI 306: Waste 2020
By including updated disclosures, circularity and waste prevention concepts, the Waste Standard reflects global best practices on waste management. This provides for a practical and usable tool and harmonization with SDG 12. GRI 306: Waste 2020 includes two management approach and three topic-specific disclosures that will support organizations to:
•Understand and publicly report how procurement, design and use of materials lead to waste-related impacts.
- Provide comprehensive insights into the quantity and quality of waste – including its causes, where it is generated and how impacts are managed.
- Identify and report on circularity and waste prevention opportunities and actions.
- Assess and take responsibility for waste generated throughout the value chain, both upstream and downstream.
