  • KPMG's sustainability training reflects UAE Vision 2021 goals 
  • The course will take place from 12-13 October in Dubai
  • KPMG has trained over 1900 professionals in sustainability reporting worldwide

Dubai, UAE, 9 October 2016:  Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the UAE as the nation continues to develop a more diversified economy that has to be more adaptable to changing circumstances. With the UAE Vision 2021, the UAE government aims to embed sustainable practices across businesses pillars. Sustainable business practices involve those that create long-term stakeholder value by managing risks and optimizing opportunities.

KPMG in the UAE is pleased to announce GRI G4 Certified Training course on Sustainability Reporting. Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) G4 guidelines are the most widely accepted guidelines for sustainability reporting by Fortune 500. A sustainability report provides balanced information on an organisation's economic, environmental and social performance also known as the triple bottom line. 

Raajeev B. Batra, Partner, and Head of Risk Consulting at KPMG Lower Gulf says: 'Businesses that hope to expand their global footprint and keep in line with UAE Vision 2021 must assess their firm's business practices to chart out a way forward. This course will help key decision makers across departments ranging from finance to supply chain develop an in-depth understanding of what it takes to make a business sustainable from the ground up.'

KPMG's GRI G4 certified course will teach participants about the sustainability reporting process and will include the basics and requirements of GRI G4 guidelines, planning the reporting process, conducting a dialogue with stakeholders and building the report.

The certified course is based on global leading methodologies adapted for the GCC. KPMG is a worldwide leader and has trained over 1900 participants in over ten countries in the certified course. The Climate Change and Sustainability team includes over 700 professionals working in more than 50 countries. To find out more about the course, including modules, KPMG trainers, cost and location please check the attached PDF.
