GRI Certified Training Program
The GRI Certified Training Program prepares participants in coordinating a sustainability reporting process. Participants acquire an overview of the reporting process, develop insight into what actions to take, and are made aware of the potential challenges and benefits of sustainability reporting.
The training is based on the official GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework, and is illustrated using local examples, while discussions of trends in sustainability reporting ensure that participants are informed of current developments. Input-lectures, case studies, group work, and best practises optimize the quality of training.
