Most organisations know that the sustainability issue can no longer be ignored. Whether driven by corporate conscience, stakeholder pressure or regulations, organisations recognise that action must be taken now. Sustainability has moved far beyond philanthropy and ethics. It’s now at the heart of corporate strategy and competitive advantage.
Companies are increasingly using sustainability to create business value or integrating financial and non-financial reporting to identify all value sources. Sustainability can spur product and service innovation, and disclosing shared values can support companies’ license to operate.
This training course will enable participants to understand and coordinate the GRI sustainability reporting process, a global gold standard in Sustainability reporting. The course will provide a basis for working on the Sustainability report for your own organisation and will provide guidance on how to ensure a high quality report and maximise the benefits of GRI reporting.
In May 2013, GRI issued new guidelines “G4”. G4 places the concept of materiality at the heart of sustainability reporting. This will result in reports that are strategic and focused. G4 is significantly different to the previous version as it places a greater focus on organization’s economic, environmental and social impacts. Materiality becomes the threshold at which relevant topics are sufficiently important and therefore should be reported.
