Dallas-Fort Worth

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, from all sectors, featuring sector specific metrics that can flexibly be  adapted to communicate performance in key sustainability areas.

Concerned about the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines?

No need to worry. In an effort to provide a value-added service, we have added a special section to all our current GRI trainings, on the proposed  G4 changes and their impacts. In addition to that, once the guidelines will be made public in May 2013, all participants who have completed our courses will be eligible for a 50% discount of the GRI certified G4 bridging module covering the major differences between the G3/3.1 and G4 Guidelines.

All attendees of ISOS Group G3.1 training courses offered through May 2013 will automatically qualify for a FREE webinar and a 50% DISCOUNT on the GRI Certified G4 Bridging Module.

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.
