Transition to GRI Standards Module
This GRI Certified course will provide you a practical overview of how to use the new Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards as you progress from the G4 version of the GRI framework.
In October 2016, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), launched the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards.
The new standards are a transition from the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting framework, and aim to provide a more flexible, more credible, and more future-proof structure for GRI’s reporting standards.
The course builds upon your knowledge of previous versions of the GRI framework, such as G4 or G3/3.1 and brings you up to date with the very latest in best practice sustainability reporting using the GRI Standards.
By the end of the course, participants should feel very confident in how to navigate the new modular structure of the GRI Standards, which, while looking very different, are not so different in content to previous versions of the GRI.
