After a successful evaluation by the Global Reporting Initiative, DQS CFS has been officially appointed as a GRI Certified Training Partner in Germany. With thousands of reporting organizations in over 90 countries, the GRI guidelines are the most commonly used framework for sustainability reporting in the world. The GRI certified training courses aim to help organizations with the preparation of their reports, as well as to optimize the quality of current reporting practices.
As more and more organizations disclose information on their sustainability performance, the demand for reporting experts continues to grow. In order to meet this demand, the Global Reporting Initiative has developed a global network of certified training partners, who work with GRI-approved course materials, translated and adapted for local markets. The training enables participants to prepare sustainability reports in accordance with the GRI standards and provides valuable input on how to maximize the impact of the reports.
First Training Sessions in the Fall of 2017
Now that the certification process has been finalized, we are happy to announce that a first training session on the GRI Standards will be held on November 28, 2017, in Frankfurt/Main. For further training dates, please consult our online event calendar.
With the certification as GRI training partner, DQS continues to develop its service portfolio for sustainability reporting. Prior to becoming a training partner, DQS had already been appointed as a GRI Data Partner and became an AA1000-licensed assurance provider in 2014.
