Switzerland: Advanced Session on GRI Standards

15 Jun, 2023

This is an invitation only event. For more information, please contact the SSE team.

In order to provide markets with high-quality training on disclosure standards, this training event was developed in collaboration with the GRI and the Swiss SIX stock exchange. This training program introduces market participants to disclosing ESG information using the GRI standards.

This advanced session gives a brief introduction on how GRI fits with other standards and frameworks, particularly ISSB and TCFD. Furthermore, it provides an overview of the new universal standards and on what differs from previous versions as well as offers a more detailed discussion on materiality. This session is suited for participants who already use GRI.

This training course is certified by CPD and participants will receive a certificate upon completion of a feedback survey.

This training session is provided in collaboration with GRI and the Swiss SIX Stock exchange.
