Course Description

Risks and opportunities associated with environmental and social metrics are increasingly scrutinized by investors and other stakeholders along with traditional business performance indicators. It is important for companies to align their sustainability initiatives and reporting to meet the growing demands of key stakeholders. Companies must carefully consider the issues most material to their stakeholders in order to develop metrics, collect relevant data, measure impacts and provide reporting that meets the needs of their audience.

This course will look at corporate sustainability through the lens of AccountAbility’s AA1000 Series of Standards. AccountAbility has recently released a new Principles Standard. This will be the first approved training offered anywhere in the world that looks at this new standard.
