Important Sustainability Events & Trainings
Today we call your attention to a number of events and training initiatives that may be of interest if you are:
- A corporate manager with responsibilities in the areas of [corporate] citizenship, sustainability, ESG, responsibility, and related areas, or
- Working in the capital markets and want to learn more about these topics, or
- Working in another field and would like to join a company or investor organization focused on sustainability and sustainable investing...
An important part of the G&A Institute mission since our founding a decade ago is to help educate, inform and share critical information related to the above topics and positions. As an example we work closely with Skytop Strategies on many events such as the ESG Summit, 21st Century Company, and Future of Corporate Reporting that educate and inform on these subjects. We'd like to tell you about a few of our most recent initiatives in these areas.

Join G&A for a Special GRI Standards Launch Event Webinar
We've been communicating with you about the important event coming up at Bloomberg Headquarters in New York City-- the Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) Sustainability Standards Launch Event scheduled for Wednesday, November 3rd. We've learned that the registration for the in-person event is now full and closed.
You can still learn about the new GRI Standards via the convenience of a lunchtime webinar: Governance & Accountability Institute invites you on behalf of GRI to join us in celebrating the launch of the GRI Sustainability Standards on an informative one-hour webinar led by GRI's Alyson Genovese on Thursday, November 10th at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Whether you are new to sustainability reporting or a seasoned veteran, this webinar is designed to provide you with an interactive, detailed overview of the very latest in sustainability reporting. You’ll be guided through the new GRI Standards, important background and benefits, and you'll be receiving an excellent overview of the changes from the current G4 Guidelines. You’ll have ample opportunity to ask questions to both GRI and G&A (reminder: we're the exclusive GRI Data Partner in the USA, United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, member of the GRI Data Consortium, and a Gold Community Member).
