- Prepare you for future reporting cycles through continuous improvement principles.
Who should attend?
Individuals who are new to the Global Reporting Initiative sustainability reporting process, or reporters who may not have attended the course, and need some extra tools and focus to help them along. It can also be of benefit to have more than one person from the same organisation attend the workshop, as sustainability reporting is multi-disciplinary in nature, and it helps to have more than one person with GRI knowledge as support. Our participants come from a broad spectrum of sustainability focused areas of the organisation, including company secretary, HSE, corporate planning, project management, corporate social responsibility, health & wellbeing planning/policy, sustainability, communications, education and marketing, business analysts, community relations, business improvement, HR and more.
