Sustainability Reporting Course - Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Paia’s Sustainability Reporting Course is run by practitioners with over 20 years experience in sustainability reporting.  This is a practical course, detailing what sustainability reporting is, explaining what the frameworks are (GRI, Integrated Reporting & SASB), what is required by SGX and will work through the key steps to producing a sustainability report.  Over 1,200 participants have attended Paia’s training, many sending colleagues for future runs.

During the course we work through case study examples, and draw from our expertise from successfully working on 116 SGX listed Sustainability Reports to provide practical guidance on how to efficiently produce a robust report inline with SGX and international guidelines.
