CSR Practitioner Training

New GRI and SASB Modules


To support existing sustainability practitioners, ISOS is offering a new set of practical workshops including:

  • a path to the Fundamentals of Sustainability Accounting (FSA) Credential
  • three new modules developed by the GRI Training and Coaching team in collaboration with GRI’s Knowledge Unit.

These modules will enhance sustainability literacy and skill-sets required to leverage opportunities that lead to broader individual and brand recognition.

1. Learn about the Fundamentals of Sustainability Accounting (FSA) Credential Key learning points: Learn how sustainability factors impact financial performance; Understand the legal context for material sustainability information; Gain a common language to describe the materiality of sustainability information to finance, legal and accounting professionals; Know the difference between good disclosure vs boilerplate.
2. Leveraging Sustainability Reports for the Investment CommunityDesigned to enhance awareness of, and capacity to use the GRI Guidelines by/for investors. It will give professionals the tools they need to evaluate non-financial reporting. This workshop is aimed at professional investors and those within reporting organizations looking to bridge the gap between GRI and SASB.

3. Shared Value of Sustainability ReportingDesigned to align non-financial reports with users needs. In addition to a basic overview of the world’s de facto standard, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), instructors will highlight ways in which the players can maximize reporting features to expand the uses of GRI’s Guidelines.
4. Progressing on the Sustainable Development GoalsDesigned to support the alignment between GRI Guidelines and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since many organizations have yet to set targets for minimizing impacts to the international agreements on greenhouse gasses and beyond, using the SDGs can be a great way to cast the net towards larger objectives and develop actionable strategies for implementation.

We are combining these four modules into a 2-day program. In addition to expert consultation from ISOS Group and iCompli, you will benefit from:

  • Working towards achieving the new FSA professional certificate for investors and sustainability professionals
  • GRI Confirmation of Completion from a leading sustainability training organization
  • Walk-through and Guidance on Bloomberg’s ESG Terminal
  •  ESG Risk Identification from eRevalue
  • Practical Steps for Implementing the SDGs from a UN representative
  • Real world sustainability reporting approaches from leading global organizations

GRI Modules:This interactive workshop is taught by working sustainability reporting professionals with in-depth knowledge of GRI, SASB and other globally accepted reporting frameworks including CDP, Integrated Reporting, DJSI, The Sustainability Consortium (TSC). A blend of instruction, individual and group exercises, guest speakers and real-world examples keeps the course engaging and lively.

SASB Module: SASB is coming! Are you ready? Get up to speed with SASB and learn about the Fundamentals of Sustainability Accounting (FSA) Credential — a new professional certificate for investors and sustainability professionals. This 4-hour workshop led by SASB Advisory Partner, iCompli Sustainability will introduce you to SASB’s industry-specific sustainability standards, explain why they are different from GRI, and show you how to integrate them into your current reporting and portfolio analysis.
