Public comment on drafts of GRI Standards 303: Water and Effluents and 403: Occupational Health and Safety


A 60-day public comment period is now open to review proposed changes to GRI 303: Water and GRI 403: Occupational Health and Safety.

These GRI Standards  part of the first global standards for sustainability reporting – have been updated through a formal due process, overseen by the GSSB, GRI’s independent standard-setting body.
