ISOS Group applies innovative but practical approaches to learning that will fast track you to expert status, equipping participants with the know-how required to manage the reporting process. The two-day training walks new and experienced sustainability practitioners through the GRI reporting process and the key pillars of the GRI Reporting Framework: stakeholder engagement, the materiality assessment process and principles for ensuring credibility, transparency and balance in triple bottom line reporting.

All our trainings are unique in that they are infused with the experiences of each individual trainer, engaging dialogue with participants and top-notch cadre of guest speakers that give real life examples of how they applied the GRI methodology for sustainability reporting. At the end of the training, participants will receive certificates directly from the Global Reporting Initiative.

TRAINING ADD-ON: To further enhance our participants’ experience, the October 11-12 training will be followed by a Public Panel entitled “Transparency in the Bay Area” with public agencies, local economic development entities and ethical corporations being brought together to discuss local sustainability initiative and accountability.
