WAITING FOR GRI’S G4 UPGRADE? ENROLL IN THE G3.1 COURSE NOW, AND THEN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FREE OR DISCOUNTED G4 TRAINING LATER IN THE YEAR.
GRI will publish the fourth version of its Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (G4) at the end of May 2013. For those interested in using the G4 Guidelines as soon as possible, the Global Reporting Initiative strongly recommends that you complete the current G3.1 GRI Certified Training Course now, and then sign up for the G4 Bridging Module course in mid-2013.
Here’s how it works:
MAY 2013: GRI will launch the G4 Guidelines at its Global Conference on Sustainability and Reporting in Amsterdam beginning on May 22, 2013, with a special pre-conference training exclusively for the GRI Certified Training Partners around the world, including ISOS Group.
JUNE 2013: After the public announcement of the G4 Guidelines, GRI will release the GRI Certified G4 Bridging Module, specifically designed for those who have already completed the GRI Certified G3.1 Training.
SUMMER 2013: ISOS Group will offer two ways to get trained on G4:
- A webinar will highlight the key differences between the G3/G3.1 and the G4 Guidelines.
- GRI Certified G4 Bridging Module will be offered as an add-on option (priced separately) to our regular two-day trainings, providing more in-depth coverage of G4.
All attendees of ISOS Group G3.1 training courses offered through May 2013 will automatically qualify for a FREE webinar and/or a 50% DISCOUNT on the GRI Certified G4 Bridging Module.
FALL 2013: After the release of the official G4 Bridging Module to its training partners, GRI will finalize and release the full two-day GRI Certified G4 Training course materials. ISOS expects to introduce the G4 course in the last quarter of 2013.
Additionally, the G3.1 Guidelines will be in effect for another two years, providing G3.1 reporters ample time to transition to the G4 Guidelines.
