15. Global reporting standard for sustainable materials and waste management

GRI, the leading global standard setter for sustainability reporting is revising its waste disclosures. In 2018, the Global Sustainability Standards Board has appointed a group of leading experts from the investor community, business and civil society to address global challenges created by the current linear ‘take-make-waste’ industrial model. The aim is to bring waste disclosure in line with international best practice in circular materials management – to advance transparent disclosure of comparable, concise and current information to aid investor’s, business’ and stakeholder’s data
needs and decision-making. The objective of this session is to "road test" the draft Standard with the audience and discuss its role as a powerful and standardized tool for business action on circular economy.
