Public Comment Period on the Draft GRI Airport Operator Sector Supplement
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has opened the Public Comment Period on the final draft of the Airport Operator Sector Supplement.
Since January 2009, an international multi-stakeholder Working Group has been developing this sector specific reporting guidance for airport operators to effectively manage, measure and communicate their impact on the environment, society and the economy. Therefore the Sector Supplement intends to cover all material sustainability aspects for the sector such as airport noise, and to provide further reporting guidance on the existing GRI G3 Guidelines disclosure items.
The GRI Public Comment Period is the main opportunity for the public interested to provide comments and feedback on the draft Sector Supplement and give advice to the Working Group on the draft Sector Supplement. Given your sector expertise, GRI would be delighted to receive feedback on the reporting guidance proposed in the final draft. The Working Group developing the Sector Supplement will review all survey responses and incorporate the feedback using a consensus based approach.
The Public Comment Period is open from 11 August until 10 November 2010. Please review the draft (PDF) of the Sector Supplement and then provide feedback on it via the online survey at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DHHTF97.
Following the Public Comment Period, the GRI Working Group will review and consider all feedback received to finalize the Sector Supplement in order to release it mid 2011.
Thank you in advance, your feedback is much appreciated! Please forward this call for comments to anyone potentially interested in providing feedback.
