GRI Standards Training



The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the world’s leading framework for sustainability or corporate social responsibility (CSR) reporting.

The GRI Standards are the first global standards for sustainability reporting. They feature a modular, interrelated structure, and represent the global best practice for reporting on a range of economic, environmental and social impacts. The GRI Standards are 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.


GRI Certified: Participants will go through a GRI G4 primer followed by the GRI Standards Training. You will learn how to use the new GRI Standards including how 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. Following the GRI Training, participants will walk away with a better understanding of how GRI relates to their specific organization, how it applies to daily business scenarios and how it can help with strategic planning.


The 2-day training is taught by working sustainability reporting professionals with in-depth knowledge of the GRI, CDP, IIRC Integrated Reporting, DJSI, GRESB, SASB Reporting Frameworks 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.
