Does your organization use the GRI Standards to report on its water use and impacts? Do you have transparency requirements that you would like the GRI Standards to address? Help GRI’s Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) develop and update the GRI 303: Water Standard so that it is even more effective for your needs!

GRI is looking for business, investor, civil society and labor constituents to participate in upcoming Project Working Groups that will review and update GRI 303: Water in 2017. The Working Groups aim to ensure that the content of the revised Standards incorporates the needs of a wide variety of reporters and other stakeholders. As a result, the Standards will continue to represent internationally-agreed best practice and recent developments for managing and reporting on these topics.

To get involved, please respond to the open call for Project Working Group nominations before the quickly approaching 19 February deadline. You can also sign up to stay informed about updates to the GRI Standards, including upcoming public comment opportunities.
