Call for applicants to support GRI’s standard-setting

Source: , 17 October 2019

The governance body with sole responsibility for developing and implementing the GRI Standards is looking for a new member who is representative of business enterprises.

The Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB) seeks to be inclusive across sectors, functions, geographic boundaries and constituency groups. There is a vacancy for an individual of high integrity from the private sector, with in-depth knowledge and practical experience of sustainability reporting and a deep understanding of its broader context.

The nomination period is open from 17 October to 7 November. This follows a wider call earlier this year for opportunities across GRI’s various governance bodies. In all cases the start date will be from 1 January 2020.

Applications are considered by GRI’s Independent Appointments Committee, which seeks to balance regional and gender diversity in its appointments to the GSSB.
