GRI Certified Training Program

Course Description

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.

COMING SOON: GRI certified training courses in Mainland China.

Starting in Spring, 2016, BSD China will begin offering GRI training courses in Mainland China. These courses will offer a local context, using examples both from Mainland China and overseas.

Our listing of upcoming events will be updated over the next few weeks as the course details are finalized, so please check back with us.
