E-Learning Program

​​GRI’s E-Learning Program is designed to offer an interactive educational experience to participants: from beginners to senior professionals in the world of sustainability. This program helps its diverse participants achieve a deeper understanding of key sustainability topics.


 UPDATE: Transition to GRI Standards

​In October 2016,  the GRI G4 Guidelines have transitioned to GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards). The GRI Standards are effective from 1 July 2018, although earlier adoption is encouraged. 

Update: The course Introduction to GRI and Sustainability Reporting Standards has been updated to GRI Standards. The remaining e-learning courses are currently based on the G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. New updated courses will be ready soon!
