ZOOiD’s two day intensive Global Reporting Initiative (G4) Sustainability Reporting Process workshop will teach you how to apply the GRI’s sustainability reporting framework to your reporting so that you can produce a world class sustainability report.

Taught in the context of today’s reporting environment through the use of local and international case studies and practical activities, participants will find that this workshop demystifies many of the perceived challenges of reporting using the GRI.

Key learnings will help you to:

  • Understand, interpret and implement the GRI G4 concepts
  • Apply the GRI Reporting Principles (Stakeholder Inclusiveness, Sustainability Context, Materiality, Completeness, Balance, Comparability, Accuracy, Timeliness, Clarity and Reliability
  • Identify, prioritise and communicate with your Stakeholders
  • Identify material Aspects (topics) and their Boundaries (internal and/or external to your organisation)
  • Select which information should be reported on through defined stakeholder engagement and materiality assessment
  • Understand how GRI reporting can be aligned with Integrated Reporting, the UN Global Compact Principles, ISO 26000 and CDP reporting
  • Communicate your report in innovative ways
  • Prepare you for future reporting cycles through continuous improvement of your processes.

An overview of Sector Disclosures and the GRI’s new ALIGN services is also provided.
