Event Details

Corporate social responsibility programs are considered an organizational best practice.  A focus on sustainability helps organizations manage their social and environmental impacts, improving their bottom line.  Just as importantly, the disclosure of such activities has become a topic of importance for stakeholders such as employees, customers, investors and the government. 

In this 2-day course participants will gain the knowledge to start or enhance their organization’s sustainability reporting projects through providing a current and relevant overview of the sustainability reporting universe.

Students will gain a strong understanding of sustainability reporting frameworks, best practices, pitfalls to avoid, and ways to ensure their sustainability reporting is meaningful and value-added to their organization.  This will be done through discussion, review of up-to-date research, and analysis of current existing sustainability reports. Additionally, participants will gain an enhanced ability to assess and evaluate other organization’s sustainability reports.
