The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) published their GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines in May 2013. GRI also announced that sustainability reports based on the older versions of G3 and G3.1 will not be accepted after 31 December 2015.

The G4 Guidelines contain significant changes and new requirements. Therefore, it is crucial for reporting companies to start early to avoid embarrassing mistakes and failure in meeting the deadline. Early adopters will also have an edge over their peers, will gain stakeholders’ respect and reap a number of benefits the G4 framework offers.

This course is designed to help reporting organisations to make a smooth transition from G3/G3.1 by adopting a practical approach.
