An introduction to sustainability reporting

A Guardian Sustainable Business Network seminar in association with TwoTomorrows.

Once the preserve of the FTSE100, sustainability reporting is now commonplace. Many organisations find it hard to know where to start. This one-day course will help you on your way, whether you’ve started the journey or are contemplating the pros and cons. Guardian Sustainable Business in association with Two Tomorrows, will provide a thorough introduction to the topic with experts on hand to answer your questions and help you gain the most alongside others in the same boat.

What you will learn:

·         What are the benefits of reporting? What are the common pitfalls?
·         What help is available? Are there guidelines I can follow? Should I use GRI?
·         How do I get started, what help do I need, how much will it cost, how long will it take?
·         Experts, who have helped many first-time reporters will be on hand to answer your questions
·         Hear other companies’ experiences

Who should attend:

This course is designed for colleagues who have not yet produced a sustainability report.

·         CSR & sustainability managers
·         Key strategic staff
·         Sustainability consultants
