Beyond reporting - Leveraging the GRI Standards to gain a competitive advantage

The 2-day FBRH GRI Standards Certified and IEMA approved course does not just help participants prepare, ASAP, a GRI Standards CSR/ ESG/ SDG/ Sustainability report that presents their company’s or organisation’s economic, environmental and social impacts.

2) The course will help you understand how your company or organisation will benefit from the transition to the green economy and gain valuable competitive advantage.

The world is changing. Are you changing too?

Millennials, who hold our future in their hands, are overwhelmingly pro-sustainability and are showing this with their every action. Worldwide, companies and organisations are taking action to benefit from the transition to the Green Economy. 

Are your competitors better prepared? Are they dealing more successfully with stricter regulations and changing buying and decision-making patterns?

1) How will your company benefit from the transition to the green economy?
2) Are your competitors better prepared, gaining a competitive advantage?

Your competitors will gain a competitive advantage if they are better prepared/preparing for:
• Changes and stricter regulations regarding emissions, adjusting their products and services accordingly.
• Changes in buying patterns by newer generations (which are overwhelmingly pro-sustainability). 
Stricter stock exchange rules
Investors who want to see that a company is well-prepared for the foreseeable future.
Ever growing supply chain pressure. Companies are choosing to do business with corporations that can provide sustainability-related information and data and can demonstrate that they are aware of environmental, economic and societal risks, taking continuous action. These companies are looking for long-term, sustainable relationships.

A good GRI Standards CSR/ ESG/ SDG/ Sustainability Report will help you make sound sustainable development decisions. The GRI Standards can be used by any company, regardless of size, sector or location, not only to get a clearer picture of future risks and challenges but also to identify and act on opportunities and gain a valuable competitive advantage.

With your GRI Standards-based Sustainability Report you will be able to demonstrate that you are taking solid and focused action (materiality)

You will be able to instantly demonstrate:

  • that you have already identified your most important impacts, the effect your company has on the economy, the environment, and/or society, which in turn can illustrate your organisation’s contribution to sustainable development

  • the real actions you are specifically and continually taking to minimise negative and increase positive impacts


The FBRH GRI Standards Certified and IEMA Approved Course

Start reporting ASAP in accordance with the GRI Standards. At the end of the 2-day course you will be able to:

  • Confidently navigate to find all required information and take action. You will not become an expert, but we have ensured that nobody leaves without a sound understanding of how to prepare a report in accordance with the GRI Standards.
  • Understand how to proceed and identify the most important impacts which you should be dealing with (materiality).
  • Understand how to take meaningful action using SMART targets.
  • Employ the best ways to proceed with stakeholder engagement. Stakeholders are the entities or people you are affecting with your operations and who may, in turn, hold you back or stop you from reaching your objectives.
  • Develop focused and high-quality report content. You will learn how to prepare a lean report that is not a box ticking exercise, a report that demonstrates that you are making a difference using the all-round, structured and methodical approach of the GRI Standards.
  • Benchmark against companies in your sector. We have specially designed, valuable hands-on exercises which are unique to your sector. Pre-course preparation is of paramount importance and helps us customise training to suit your individual needs and company objectives.
  • Communicate your report to your stakeholders.
  • Demonstrate to others why a sustainability report is not a nice-to-have but a must-have.
  • Have a solid plan of action and proceed ASAP with your report.
