The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is a certified training organization for the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
The Boston College Carroll School of Management is the only business school in the U.S. offering GRI training. Unlike other GRI training programs, our course is open only to corporate managers. Unique to the this program - and all Center programs - is the real-life, practical component we bring into the room as current practitioners share their perspectives and lessons learned in their GRI journey.
This two-day program provides a comprehensive foundation in the elements of a GRI report, the GRI reporting process and in-depth exploration of key reporting activities. It will equip you with the knowledge necessary to start your company’s first GRI report or transform your existing CSR report into the GRI format.
Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
- Articulate the benefits and challenges of CSR reporting and the structure of the GRI framework
- Outline the GRI reporting process and apply it to your organization
- Identify, prioritize and engage stakeholders
- Select topics for action and report
This program is designed for professionals involved with any facet of the reporting process for their company. Individuals who provide quantitative and/or qualitative data, engage with stakeholders, or communicate the company’s economic, social or environmental impacts will benefit from this program.
