With this 2-day ESG/CSR/ Sustainability Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Certified and IEMA approved course, you will learn how to take solid, focused action (materiality) to minimise your company's environmental, economic & social impacts by employing the world's most widely used standards and also take action to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


The issue - why you need to #TakePositiveAction and #BePostiveChange using the GRI Standards

Our world has progressed a great deal but is far from perfect. We need to proceed towards a sustainable, circular economy, battle climate change (there is no planet B), protect the environment (#BreathCleanAir!) and tackle the many pressing issues our societies are facing.

This is not the sole responsibility of governments, regulators or international organizations. Each and every company, NGO or other organization has an important part to play: it has to be the positive change we want to see in our world.

The value a company gains through CSR/ Sustainability reporting done responsibly, cannot be ignored. Furthermore, companies cannot afford to be left behind and not take action to address ever-growing supply chain pressure

So, how do you #TakePositiveAction?

We propose the use of the GRI Standards: an all round, complete, structured, and methodical approach which is used by 80% of the worlds largest 250 companies. Whether you are seeking to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or need to implement a sustainable development plan for your company, the GRI Standards guide you every step of the way to identify and implement the decisions that matter. Most importantly, detailed requirements and guidance are provided, so you can begin to take action to minimise your impacts but also impacts within your supply chain.

With your GRI Standards based Sustainability Report you will be able to demonstrate that you are taking solid and focused action (materiality)

You will be able to instantly demonstrate:

  • that you have already identified your most important impacts, the effect your company has on the economy, the environment, and/or society, which in turn can illustrate your organization’s contribution to sustainable development

  • the real actions you are specifically and continually taking to minimise negative and increase positive impacts

You will be using the GRI Standards, an all round, complete, structured and methodical approach to identify, measure, manage and change, and demonstrate your company’s positive contribution to the world. 

The FBRH GRI Standards Certified and IEMA Approved Course

The aim of the course is to get you to start reporting ASAP in accordance with the GRI Standards. At the end of the 2-day course you will be able to:

  • Confidently navigate to find all required information and take action. You will not become an expert, but we have ensured that nobody leaves without a sound understanding of how to prepare a report in accordance with the GRI Standards.
  • Understand how to proceed and identify the most important impacts which you should be dealing with (materiality).
  • Understand how to take meaningful action using SMART targets.
  • Employ the best ways to proceed with stakeholder engagement. Stakeholders are the entities or people you are affecting with your operations and who may, in turn, hold you back or stop you from reaching your objectives.
  • Develop focused and high-quality report content. You will learn how to prepare a lean report that is not a box ticking exercise, a report that demonstrates that you are making a difference using the all-round, structured and methodical approach of the GRI Standards.
  • Benchmark against companies in your sector. We have specially designed, valuable hands-on exercises which are unique to your sector.
  • Communicate your report to your stakeholders.
  • Demonstrate to others why a sustainability report is not a nice-to-have but a must-have.
  • Have a solid plan of action and proceed ASAP with your report.
