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.

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.

Trainers: The course is taught by working sustainability reporting professionals with in-depth knowledge of the GRI Reporting Framework and decades of experience managing enterprise-level reporting projects across a variety of sectors. A blend of instruction, individual and group exercises, guest speakers and real-world examples keeps the course engaging and lively.

Earn CPE Credits: CPAs earn 16 CPE credits at the overview level: Four hours each per business and organization, communications, social environment of business, and specialized knowledge and applications. In accordance with the standards of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, CPE credits are granted based on a 50-minute hour.

Upon training completion, participants receive their globally recognized G4 certificates directly from the Global Reporting Initiative.
