GRI Standards training

GRI Standards Certified Training Course

Our next course is on the 25/26 November 2020

Why GRI Standards reporting?

There are five powerful benefits of using the GRI Standards:

  1. Credibility: The GRI standards are the world’s most widely used and recognised sustainability reporting framework, used in 90 countries for over 20 years.
  2. Accountability: As a standard, your GRI sustainability reporting can be independently audited and assured by a third party.
  3. Relevance: The GRI reporting course provides a strong foundation for defining what sustainability means for your organisation and how to measure and communicate your sustainable performance.
  4. Effective: The materiality principle developed by GRI is essential for effective reporting non-financial performance and a fundamental input to a coherent sustainability strategy.
  5. Consistency: GRI provides an easy to follow process for identifying, measuring and communicating your most material sustainability issues.
