Topics include:
• What is a sustainability report?
• What is the GRI reporting framework?
• What are the benefits for a company/organization?

The course on GRI reporting will be delivered by nominated trainers of SynTao as a Certified Training Partner for Mainland China, Macau and Taiwan. SynTao is the first GRI Certified Training Partner in Mainland China, Macau and Taiwan. In 2009 we also conducted regular trainings on the topic of sustainability in cooperation with: World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Center for Environmental Education and Communications of Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP), Strategic Program Fund (SPF) and the China Association for NGO Cooperation (CANGO).

Community Investment and Impact Measurement Training by CSR Asia (1 day) Community Investment is an essential part of CSR. This course will provide participants with the skills to develop a CSR system founded on engagement with the community (the basis of good CSR). The key issue discussed will be how to measure your CSR impact; i.e., are resources being utilized in ways to provide the best possible benefits to the communities in which your company is engaged? Being able to measure impact and collect data allows companies to
