What are the benefits of Sustainability Reporting?

  • Sustainability reporting adds value to the bottom line in many ways, such as improving brand reputation, increasing market share, and driving cost-effective sustainability investments.

  • Bloomberg terminals feature CDP data and get over 700 million hits per month.

  • GRI Standards provide a common language for the non-financial reporting for all users of GRI reports who demand quality and consistency.

  • SASB Standards provide guidance on industry-specific disclosure topics which matter most to investors.

Stakeholders of all types, including customers, employees, and investors, are increasingly demanding not only better sustainability performance, but also increased transparency on sustainability topics. KERAMIDA provides sustainability training courses in the leading disclosure frameworks to help our clients communicate their sustainability stories to their stakeholders.

Sustainability Reporting Training Testimonials:

Encourage people to take this course as a starting point to preparing their first GRI report. It would have saved me a lot of time and confusion had I started with this course. The course was so helpful!
— Major U.S. Food Manufacturer (GRI-Certified Standards Course Participant)
The training was very engaging and educational. I was impressed with the passion at which Pamela taught the material. I go to a lot of training and most of them could be very dry. The interaction kept everything fresh and dynamic. We will definitely have other team members train with Pamela and KERAMIDA.
— Water Control Equipment Company (GRI-Certified Standards Course Participant)
The training provided information that will help me provide stronger counsel to my clients on their CSR reporting and helped clarify how each step of the process is critical for the next step.

Monday and Tuesday were very rewarding. You have been most helpful, going way beyond my expectations. I believe I am also able to explain the process and scoring to the others in my team to ensure performance at the plant level consistent with the vision of our company. I will also be following up with KERAMIDA regarding upcoming needs, particularly as we reach to achieve compliance to the new silica standard within the casting division.

The presenters were incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and interesting. I definitely would take training courses from them again in the future.
