The Global Reporting Initiative, the gold standard for corporate sustainability reporting, is inviting suggestions of new topics through June 30 for the upcoming v4 (GRI calls it “G4″) of its standards.
This is the initial step in a revision process scheduled to culminate in a revised standard in 2013. Companies that are systematically reducing their products’ toxicity and reporting publicly on their progress should submit comments urging GRI to add specific reporting provisions that capture such efforts. Such reporting can highlight leaders and laggards in reducing corporate toxic footprints and promote development of safer chemicals and products.
