We've talked about the Global Reporting Initiative effort before. I just got a heads-up that the group is looking for partners in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and "Chinese-speaking countries" (someone help me -- is this shorthand for not offending China by naming Taiwan?) Anyway, I know some of you reading this blog fit those geographic criteria, so this message is for you:
Call for Training Partners by Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)On 31 October 2008 the GRI Learning Services Team issued a new call for training partners in Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Chinese-speaking countries. The 'call' will close by the end of January. The application deadline is 31 January 2009, 23:30 CET.
The aim of the 'call' is to select, set agreements with and prepare training partners to deliver GRI certified training programs in their countries or regions. The GRI certified training program aims to disseminate knowledge on sustainability reporting around the world. It has been developed especially to help report makers and users to more effectively use the GRI Framework.
