Sustainability Reporting in-line with the GRI Standards

Course Description

A company's strategy of reporting publicly its economic, environmental, and/or social impacts, and hence its positive or negative contributions to the pursuit of sustainable development, is known as sustainability reporting. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an international organization that spearheaded the advocacy of sustainability reporting, and its standard has been established as a global standard for businesses to embrace.

Adopting sustainable practices and promoting them to different stakeholders both need an understanding of how to generate reports utilizing the standard's guiding principles.
