Certified GRI Standards training

2 days starting


08.30 - 17.30

Welcome to our two-day training on GRI Standards sustainability reporting. This very popular training is certified by the Global Reporting Initiative. After completing the training, you will receive a certificate issued by GRI.

Welcome to our certified GRI Standards training on how to succeed in sustainability reporting by using GRI Standards. This training will help your organization in developing its sustainability work. We will address different ways to use the report as a part of strategic communication and describe how reporting can be used to foster sustainability.

This training focuses on the process, the results, and how the report can be used strategically. The training is largely about developing participants’ competence and ability to run complex projects such as producing a sustainability report. Effective lecture sessions are interspersed with interactive exercises and discussions based on participants’ prerequisites and challenges.

This training covers GRI Standards (2016), which will be valid for all sustainability reports published in 2022. In the autumn of 2021, an update of GRI Standards was launched. All sustainability reports published as of January 1, 2023 must be in accordance with the new version of the standards. In the spring of 2022, we will offer training in handling the transition from the 2016 standards.

A certified training in the new version of GRI Standards is expected to be launched in March 2022.
