GSSB draft work program 2023-2025 out for public consultation

The Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) has published the draft GSSB Work Program 2023-2025 and the accompanying Project Schedule 2023, approved by the GSSB on 17 November 2022 for public comment.

In line with the GSSB Due Process Protocol, the GSSB invites all stakeholders to comment on the draft GSSB Work Program 2023-2025 and the Project Schedule 2023 between 21 November 2022 and 17 February 2023.

In addition to comments on the activities and priorities set out in the draft documents, the GSSB also invites all to consider the following four questions: 

      1. Should the GSSB change the order of prioritization of the existing GRI Topic Standards for review during the period covered by this work program (see page 8)?
      2. Which topics should the GSSB prioritize for the development of new GRI Topic Standards during the period covered by this work program (see page 9)?
      3. Are there any sectors currently listed in priority groups 2, 3, and 4 in the list of prioritized sectors that should be prioritized for development during the outlined period?
      4. What activities or materials should the GSSB prioritize with regard to cooperation with other standard-setting bodies and international organizations (see page 14)?

When submitting their comments, stakeholders are requested to indicate their proposed priorities together with a brief rationale and, where relevant, the line number(s) of the respective section. 

Only written comments submitted in English will be considered. Comments will be published on the GRI website and considered a matter for public record.

Comments should be submitted to gssbsecretariat@globalreporting.org indicating ‘Public Comment GSSB Work Program 2023-2025’ in the subject line.

The deadline to submit feedback is 17 February 2023, 12.00 pm CET.

The GSSB will consider the feedback received before approving the final GSSB Work Program 2023-2025.
