GRI Testimonial

“With a focus on sustainability, stakeholders are increasingly demanding accurate and balanced information about business operations to make informed decisions. This makes sustainability reporting crucial, especially given recent exposures of companies to claims of greenwashing. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), an independent international organization, provides a standardized framework for sustainability reporting, helping organizations disclose their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance in a consistent and comparable manner. I am pleased to announce that I have received GRI certification after training with KCIC Consulting, where I gained both theoretical and practical knowledge essential for sustainable reporting. I am grateful to KCIC Consulting for providing the platform for my training and certification. Through this training, I gained clear insights into how sustainable reporting integrates the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and addresses human rights impacts of business activities. I owe a special thanks to our facilitator, Ms. Loise Wangui, who displayed great excellence at breaking down complex concepts into easily comprehensible information. From her, I have acquired in-depth knowledge in developing an ESG strategy, conducting a materiality assessment, developing a data management strategy using both internal and external sources, creating an ESG reporting roadmap by evaluating industry standards and applicable regulations and conducting readiness assessments. Given the myriads of frameworks available, I chose a certification in GRI for its ability to ensure standardized and comparable sustainability reports across different organizations and sectors. The framework provides data-driven insights for improved decision-making and risk management. Its structure also enables a business to meet the information needs of investors seeking sustainable and responsible investment opportunities, thereby enhancing investor confidence. This training has enabled me to understand other regulations, such as the European Union’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). No matter where you are in your sustainability and ESG reporting journey, the GRI framework serves as an excellent starting point. I highly recommend GRI for those interested in sustainability reporting and KCIC Consulting as a learning center for this training.”
