Launch of the GRI Biodiversity Standard: a revised standard for disclosing biodiversity impacts

Webinar-Registrierung – Zoom

In the second half of January 2024 and after two years of development, GRI will release GRI 101: Biodiversity 2024, which updates, expands, and replaces GRI 304: Biodiversity 2016. To contribute to global goals for halting and reversing biodiversity loss, businesses need standardized metrics and a level playing field to measure, understand, and manage their biodiversity impacts. To date, at least 2000 organizations worldwide use GRI 304: Biodiversity 2016 to disclose quantitative and qualitative biodiversity data. 

The disclosures in the new Biodiversity Standard align with the goals and targets of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework and are consistent with the TNFD recommendations and ESRS standard on biodiversity and ecosystems. 

GRI 101 helps organizations to better understand which decisions and business practices lead to biodiversity loss, where in their value chain impacts occur, and how they can be managed. This, in turn, will support organizations to be more resilient to system shocks, and respond to global concerns about biodiversity loss and raising awareness from consumers, investors and other stakeholders. 

The webinar will cover:· The need for transparency from the corporate sector in the context of the current biodiversity crisis· Expectations of information users for biodiversity management and reporting· How GRI 101: Biodiversity 2023 can help respond to the needs of stakeholders, from civil society, governments and investors alike· What comes next to assist business reporting with GRI 101· An opportunity to ask questions. 

Speakers:· Carol Adams, GSSB Chair· Emily McKenzie, Technical Director, TNFD· Sharon Brooks, Head of Nature Economy, UNEP WCMC· Snorre Gjerde, Lead Investment Stewardship Manager, NBIM· Raphaelle Archambeaud-Sicot, Sustainability Director, L’OCCITANE Group· Harold Pauwels, Director Standards, GRI· Other speakers TBC”
