Content: Participants will learn how to use GRI G4—the latest version of the GRI guidelines—to manage the reporting process, assess an organization’s significant impacts, select report topics and performance measures, and follow best practices for developing top-quality sustainability reports.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the world’s leading framework for sustainability or corporate social responsibility (CSR) reporting. The GRI framework is suitable for organizations of all sizes and from all sectors, featuring sector specific metrics that can flexibly be adapted to communicate performance in key sustainability areas.
Many organizations know that the sustainability issue can no longer be ignored. Whether driven by corporate conscience, stakeholder pressure or regulations, companies recognize they must take action now. Sustainability has moved far beyond philanthropy and ethics. It’s now at the heart of corporate strategy and competitive advantage.
Companies are increasingly using sustainability to create business value or integrating financial and non-financial reporting to identify all value sources. Sustainability can spur product and service innovation, and disclosing shared values can support companies’ license to operate.
Cost: $850 for this two day class.
As a commitment to sustainability by the Department of Ecology, all participants are able to register for this discounted rate.
