You are introduced to sustainability reporting and the components and criteria of the most commonly used guidelines, such as GRI Standards, Integrated Reporting and SGX reporting rules. The roles and responsibilities of the data owners and reporting team are also explained.The characteristics of sustainability data, the risks and issues concerning performance measurement and data collection are presented and best practices are highlighted. This includes guidance on using the most adequate calculation methods and conversion factors, implementing quality control mechanisms and preparing for sustainability-related audits and external assurance.
During the second day, you learn how to develop and strengthen the sustainability data management structure and quality control mechanisms in your organisation. This includes setting appropriate communication channels between the reporting team, data owners and external parties and making the most of internal or third-party systems to store, track and facilitate inspection and assurance of your sustainability information.You also learn how to identify sources, measure performance and apply calculation methods for some of the most challenging GRI indicators and other reporting rules.
Participants are also provided with take-away guidance sets and ready-to-use files to assist performance measurement, data collection and compilation within their own organisation. These files include assistance for the GRI indicators that, based on Ere-S observations, are particularly difficult to measure or compile.The course focuses on performance measurement and data management processes. It is designed to complement sustainability report development and writing courses, such as GRI reporting training.
Registration is closed.
Next session is planned for February or March 2019. We will update this page with the new dates shortly.
Ere-S has more than 10 years of experience in providing advice to multi-national corporations and NGOs on sustainability reporting, stakeholder engagement, report assurance and due diligence. The large number of sustainability data management projects we have worked on in Singapore and the region during this period has granted us extensive knowledge on how to ensure a consistent quality of data at all levels of the reporting framework.
