Sustainability reporting is growing at a rapid pace. Over the years, sustainability reporting has become more widespread globally, both in terms of geography and the number of sectors of industry. A recent report, “The KPMG Survey of Sustainability Reporting 2020,” found that 80% of companies (mid- and large-cap firms) worldwide report on their sustainability progress. Trends reveal positive developments in sustainability reporting and assurance, and this is likely to accelerate in the future as more business stakeholders and the global community are becoming involved.
To strengthen DFGE´s competence in the field of sustainability reporting, two practitioners, Ann-Katrin Bimber and Tobias Kirchhoff, successfully completed the GRI Certification Program.
Established in 2000, GRI is an international independent organization that sets professional standards for assessing and communicating ESG impacts for different categories of organizations.
Upon completing the training programme and passing the certification exam, Bimber and Kirchhoff attained a globally recognized qualification – GRI Certified Sustainability Professional, showcasing their competence and professionalism in sustainability reporting.
‘The GRI Professional Certification Program offers globally applicable and recognized professional development for individuals operating in the sustainability field, with a focus on enhancing knowledge, expertise and skills required to applying the GRI Standards and improving the quality of sustainability reporting. ‘
The program is comprised of four courses:
1. Introduction to sustainability reporting and the GRI Standards 2021 update
2. Reporting with GRI Standards 2021 update
3. Reporting on Human Rights with GRI Standards 2021 update
