This course is an important extension of programming into the reporting segment by the Center, which has more than 27 years of experience helping organizations advance corporate citizenship through its courses, webinars, and signature research reports. Unlike other GRI training programs, this Center course is open only to corporate managers.

This two-day program provides a comprehensive foundation in the elements of a GRI report, the GRI reporting process and in-depth exploration of key reporting activities. It delivers the necessary knowledge to start an initial GRI report or transform an existing CSR report into the GRI format. Completion of this course will prepare participants to:

  • Articulate the benefits and challenges of CSR reporting and the structure of the GRI framework
  • Outline the GRI reporting process and apply it to an organization
  • Identify, prioritize and engage stakeholders
  • Select topics for action and report

This program is designed for professionals involved with any facet of the reporting process for their company. Individuals who provide quantitative and/or qualitative data, engage with stakeholders, or communicate the company’s economic, social or environmental impacts will benefit from this
