GRI Disclosure 306-2

Waste by type and disposal method

Reporting Requirements for Disclosure 306-2

The reporting organization shall report the following information

306-2.A
Total weight of hazardous waste, with a breakdown by the following disposal methods where applicable: »

i. Reuse ii. Recycling iii. Composting iv. Recovery, including energy recovery v. Incineration (mass burn) vi. Deep well injection vii. Landfill viii. On-site storage ix. Other (to be specified by the organization)


306-2.B
Total weight of non-hazardous waste, with a breakdown by the following disposal methods where applicable: »

i. Reuse ii. Recycling iii. Composting iv. Recovery, including energy recovery v. Incineration (mass burn) vi. Deep well injection vii. Landfill viii. On-site storage ix. Other (to be specified by the organization)


306-2.C
How the waste disposal method has been determined: »

i. Disposed of directly by the organization, or otherwise directly confirmed ii. Information provided by the waste disposal contractor iii. Organizational defaults of the waste disposal contractor


Please see the General requirements for reporting the management approach

When compiling the information specified in Disclosure 306-2, the reporting organization shall:
  • identify hazardous waste as defined by national legislation at the point of generation;
  • exclude non-hazardous wastewater from the calculation of non-hazardous waste;
  • if no weight data are available, estimate the weight using available information on waste density and volume collected, mass balances, or similar information.
