COURSE OVERVIEW

Sustainability Reporting is an important topic at this moment for every company that either creates reports to be compliant with regulations or because they believe it is necessary for other reasons. Even though many companies are producing a sustainability report or statement every year, there is still much confusion about the topic and most sustainability reports can be improved.

This three-day program focuses on providing an in-depth understanding of Sustainability Reporting in general. It focuses not only on the requirements of BURSA Malaysia but also goes into depth on reporting in accordance with the GRI Standards and the concepts of UN SDGs and Integrated Reporting. After this program, the participants will have a clear understanding of how to prepare a sustainability statement or report and how to apply any of the global standards.

The main topics that will be featured are:

  •  BURSA Requirements
  •  GRI Standards
  •  UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  •  Integrated Reporting
  •  Other Global Standards (IIB, SASB, MSPO)

The objective of the training is to give the participants practical knowledge and skills in contrast to only having the theory presented to them. Also the focus of the program is to be able to create your own sustainability report instead of being able to analyse reports by others.

CERTIFICATION

At the end of the program, the participant will receive a certificate of attendance and will be sent a link to an online exam. After successfully completing the exam, the participant will receive a new certificate indicating that the participant successfully completed and passed the Sustainability Reporting Practitioner exam.
We are working together with Bureau Veritas, the renowned international certification agency for the certification of this program. Bureau Veritas will issue the final certificate after the participant has attended the full program and passed the online exam.
