Sustainability/CSR Reporting Certification for Students
Do you envision a world where sustainability guides every organization’s decision-making process?
So does the Global Reporting Initiative, which established standardized reporting guidelines used by organizations of all sizes – from academic to corporate, governmental to nonprofit. Using GRI’s guidelines, organizations account for the economic, environmental and social impacts of their activities – thereby creating transparency and encouraging more sustainable practices.
The School of Sustainability, in response to student demand, is thrilled to present a two-day certification training in G4 – the latest version of GRI’s guidelines. This certification will be of particular benefit to students interested in a corporate sustainability career and to those who may analyze or provide data, engage with stakeholders or communicate an organization’s impact.
Cost, which includes lunch, is $200 – a fraction of the training’s $1,500 retail value. Seats are limited to 65 students and advance registration is required. Professional development funds are available to graduate students through the ASU Graduate and Professional Student Association at gpsa.asu.edu/funding/travel. Applications for GPSA funds must be submitted by September 7.
