Courses & Training

GRI & Sustainability Reporting

Our sustainability and integrated reporting courses are designed for sustainability practitioners, reporting managers and those who want to successfully measure, communicate and manage sustainability issues using the world’s most recognized sustainability reporting frameworks – the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standard and <IR> Integrated Reporting framework.

Proxima offers 2-day comprehensive courses in the GRI and <IR> frameworks that prepare participants for being report-ready. We also offer a general 1-day course in best-practice reporting regardless of which, if any framework, you want to use. For participants who have already done a G4 GRI course, we offer a 1-day transition course to the new GRI standard.

Customizable in-house courses are also available and are popular with organisations that have four or more people wishing to attend a scheduled course.
