The Global Reporting Initiative – GRI – is an international entity that pioneered the promotion of sustainability reporting and its standard has been consolidated as a worldwide standard to be adopted by organizations. Knowing how to prepare reports using the principles of the standard is a key step in adopting sustainable practices and communicating them to various stakeholders. Learn in a practical way with the Sustainability Reporting Training how to lead your organization in this process and become able to be an active professional in the areas of sustainability and transparency.

As stated at the beginning of the GRI standard: Sustainable development has been defined as β€˜development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The objective of sustainability reporting using the GRI Standards is to provide transparency on how an organization contributes or aims to contribute to sustainable development. For this purpose, the organization needs to assess and report information about its impacts in the wider context of sustainable development.
