CLEVELAND, Mar. 07 /CSRwire/ - The Center for Sustainability at Saint Louis University is proud to announce that GRI Training Partners ISOS Group and BrownFlynn will be returning to the Saint Louis University campus to provide certified training in sustainability reporting using the GRI Framework April 18-19, 2013.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the world's leading framework for sustainability reporting. The GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework can assist you and/or your organization in developing a systematic approach to corporate responsibility and sustainability reporting. This two-day training course will help you prepare to effectively manage and report sustainability performance using the GRI Framework.
Participants will learn how to manage the sustainability reporting process using the Global Reporting Initiative’s third-generation (G3 and G3.1) Sustainability Reporting Framework, supplemental GRI reporting publications and sustainability reports from leading organizations as case studies. As the world gears up for the release of the G4 guidelines, participants will be briefed on implications of the proposed changes.
