GRI have announced the members of the project working group leading the work to create a new sustainability standard for agriculture and fishing, as part of GRI’s new Sector program.

The multi-stakeholder group, which includes diverse representatives from around the world, has met virtually for the first time. They will now take forward the project to help companies with agriculture and fishing activities in their value chain understand their role in sustainable development and promote transparency and accountability.

This group will develop a draft Agriculture and Fishing Sector Standard, which will undergo a public comment period in the first half of 2021 before further development. The final Standard is expected to publish by the end of next year.
