How do you create value through sustainability?

Workshops & Training

 Our Training

ZOOiD focuses on delivering sustainability training which is relevant and topical. Attend our courses and you will leave with strategic sustainability focused skills that can immediately be transferred to the workplace.  

Preparing a GRI report can potentially be daunting without the benefit of a structured program that takes you through all of the ins and outs and tricks of the trade in how to begin the report. ZOOiD doesn’t simply provide training in this area; ZOOiD also prepares sustainability reports for clients! 

We don’t simply provide training in sustainability. We live and breathe it. We have extensive experience in the areas in which we train.

ZOOiD is the first Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Certified Training Partner in Australia/New Zealand.

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Workshops and Training

Preparing a GRI report can potentially be daunting without the benefit of a structured program that takes you through all of the ins and outs and tricks of the trade in how to begin the report. ZOOiD doesn’t simply provide training in this area; ZOOiD also prepares sustainability reports for clients! 

Sustainability reporting using the best practice GRI Standards provides a very useful structure for organisations from all sectors and of all sizes to transparently communicate their sustainability impacts to stakeholders. A sustainability report is a useful tool to not only communicate positive and negative impacts of the organisation, but to use as a strategic tool to improve sustainability performance over time. Our workshops cover this and so much more valuable information.

We provide a one hour complementary mentoring session for each GRI Standards two day workshop participant. 

GRI training courses and additional GRI modules are delivered in virtual (online/remote) and face to face settings.

Two learning options are provided:

 Our GRI Certified workshops include:

  • Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards Sustainability Reporting workshop
  • GRI Sustainability Reporting Process module
  • Integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into Sustainability Reporting module
