“Enact Sustainability Strategies, based in Sweden and The Netherlands, teams up with ISOS Group to expand its IIRC approved integrated reporting trainings in the United States and Kenya.”
“Approved by the IIRC, both one- and two-day trainings will be offered. To celebrate the partnership, representatives of both firms will ignite the U.S. market by co-delivering a training in New York City the first quarter of 2019.”
I will be involved in the Integrated Reporting training.
This past month I have been busy delivering ISOSGroup GRI Standards Training in Seattle and Chicago.
Linda Glasier, an excellent trainer, and I delivered a course on GRI Standards at the Recology Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Seattle. The participants represented companies in the recycling, mining, cruise ship, oil extraction, and public transit sectors. Their engagement in the training and discussion from their diverse experiences resulted in rewarding sessions for all. You may recall from a prior post, I wrote about being hosted by Recology at their headquarters in San Francisco.
At the Recology MRF, we toured the Seattle facility where paper, plastic, and metals are separated to be recycled. The facility is quite impressive.
In Chicago, Burson Marsteller hosted the GRI Standards training at their office in the Merchandise Mart. At this session, participants represented consulting, nonprofit, mining, and technology organizations. Because of their engagement and great questions, we had thorough discussions about the application the GRI Standards! As you can see from the picture below, we had a great view.
I enjoy all these trainings and hope that you can join in future events. If you need to learn about GRI Standards, CDP, or SDGs, the ISOSGroup offers courses in San Diego December 3-7, 2018. Take a look at the schedule to see what fits your needs.
If you are using the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards, you may want to include Sustainable Development Goals in your reporting. How can you align the two frameworks? There are new trainings being offered by ISOS Group to help you do that.
Sustainable Development Goals Module: This workshop is designed to support the alignment between GRI Guidelines and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since many organizations have yet to set targets for minimizing impacts to the international agreements on greenhouse gasses and beyond, using the SDGs can be a great way to cast a net toward larger objectives and develop actionable strategies for implementation. Instructors will work to demonstrate actionable steps that can be taken to institute specific SDGs. Upon course completion, participants will receive a certificate directly from GRI.
It was a great training with the ISOS Group in Chicago, August 17-18. The training was interactive and provided insights from the trainers and the participants who were from the transportation sector, NGOs, and consultancy firms. If you missed this opportunity, there are more coming. Two new offerings include a GRI Practitioners Specialty Module and Transition from GRI G4 to GRI Standards. Take a look at the upcoming schedule for San Francisco, New York City, and Boulder, Colorado. Hope to see you there!
