The goal of this program is to harmonize and elevate efforts by first educating and informing groups about the most-widely-accepted sustainability reporting framework, provide starting points on Food and Agriculture sector materiality resulting from focused benchmarking, discussion and guidance so that groups walk away with a clear roadmap for moving forward in their sustainability journey.  This special GRI Business Transparency Program (BTP) training provides additional value with ongoing support for organizations as they report for the first time, or enhance their ongoing reporting process.
