Training course for beginners

Certified Training Partner

 

This course is for people from organisations, which do not yet report after the GRI Standards or people, who want to brush up on their GRI knowledge. There is no knowledge required.

Our GRI-certified courses will help you to:

  • Recognize the most important drivers for sustainability in organizations
  • Identify the internal and external value of sustainability reporting
  • Understand the GRI Standards and what they mean for sustainability reporting
  • Determine the core processes for preparing for a report
  • Apply the GRI principles and methodologies to define the report content
  • Recognize the importance of stakeholder engagement and data monitoring systems
  • Understand the critical elements of a high quality sustainability report

Course Format
Our GRI courses consist of two full days (2 x 8 hours) of instruction. Attendees will hear presentations and case studies, and participate in group exercises and discussions to actively apply the course content and strengthen the learning experience. The focus will be less on technical details of sustainability indicators, but rather on the efficient development of competent corporate processes for sustainability reporting. Our courses are typically attended by Communications Managers, Corporate Sustainability Managers and other interested professionals.

We incorporate the latest trends in our GRI training program and our trainings will cover all changes in the new GRI Standards.
