The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship at the Carrol School of Management is the only business school in the U.S. offering GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) training. Unique to this program - and all Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship programs - is the real-life, practical component we bring into the room as current corporate citizenship practitioners share their perspectives and lessons learned in their sustainability and CSR reporting journey.
Companies note a wide range of reasons and benefits they derive from the GRI report generation process as it can serve to: inform strategy and culture, establish accountability, provide transparency, stimulate dialogue with stakeholders, and engage employees across the organization in advancing corporate social responsibility. Reports are written with various stakeholders in mind, including investors, employees, senior managers, customers, community organizations and award, ranking and recognition entities. Increasingly, having a CSR report is a standard practice, and the GRI is the de facto framework across the globe.
This course will include the brand new G4 Bridging Module to help reporters incorporate the new G4 guidelines in their reporting practice.
