ORGANIZER AND PARTNERS:
ISOS Group, a GRI Certified Training Partner in the U.S.; Clinton School of Public Service, host for the ISOS GRI Certified Sustainability Reporting Training.
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.
- 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.
