Book this course! 

Understand how to prepare and co-ordinate an expert sustainability report with ACCSR’s GRI-certified training course, fully revised and updated for the new GRI Standards.

Sustainability reporting can be a key source of competitive advantage, engaging stakeholders and driving performance through accounting for your organisation’s economic, social, and environmental impacts.

The GRI Standards are the first global standards for sustainability reporting. They feature a modular, interrelated structure, and represent the global best practice for reporting on a range of economic, environmental and social impacts. The new GRI Standards will take communicating your organisational impacts and performance to the next level.

As stakeholders demand greater transparency and relevance from organisational reports, the revised GRI Standards ramp up the focus on materiality – reporting what’s most relevant to your organisation and for stakeholders.

This two-day course will provide you with the skills and tools to navigate the reporting process, identify key stakeholders, distinguish your organisation’s material issues and become your organisation’s GRI guru.


What you will learn:

  • the business case and value of sustainability reporting
  • the challenges and benefits of sustainability reporting
  • how to co-ordinate a GRI sustainability report
  • new and innovative formats for sustainability reporting


The skills you will develop:

  • plan a clear and structured sustainability reporting process from the beginning
  • identify key stakeholders and distinguish your organisation’s material issues
  • recognise the internal procedures and mechanisms you will need
  • evaluate the quality of sustainability reports using your newly acquired knowledge
