The GRI framework is suitable for organizations of all sizes, from all sectors, featuring sector specific metrics that can flexibly be adapted to communicate performance in key sustainability areas.

Transitioning from GRI G3.1 to GRI G4?

All of our trainings are now including the GRI certified G4 bridging module!

For previous participants who have completed our courses based on G3.1, we are offering the option of a DISCOUNTED Online training. Other sustainability professionals who have already been certified under G3/G3.1 by a different group can also register for our Online G4 Bridge trainings offered on a monthly basis.

The G4 Bridging Module will focus on the key differences between the G3.1 Guidelines and G4, allowing for an efficient transition to the latest requirements for sustainability reporting. Upon completion of the bridging module, participants will receive their new G4 certificates directly from GRI.

  • ISOS Group makes it its responsibility to calculate and offset the carbon footprint of our GRI Certified Sustainability Reporting trainings. We pay for the offset fees directly to TerraPass , the leading consumer retailer and marketer of greenhouse gas reduction offsets. TerraPass works by funding clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction projects throughout the U.S., including wind farms and biomass energy. In order to better estimate the offsets, we require all the participants to fill out a carbon calculator at the end of our course.

  • Registered participants who are unable to attend can postpone their attendance to a later event date or transfer placement to another person. Complete cancellations will have to be made at least 2 weeks prior to the event date in order to receive partial payment. Partial entails full payment minus $150 for processing fees and material costs. Travel expenses will not be reimbursed. If course collaborators find it necessary to cancel or postpone the event, then all registration fees will be exchanged for participation at future scheduled events.
