Arabia CSR Network successfully completes training on new ‘GRI Standards for Sustainability Reporting’

Accredited course gathers increasing number of participants from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and France

The Arabia CSR Network, the Middle East’s leading training service provider and think tank, successfully held a comprehensive training course on GRI Standards for Sustainability Reporting in Dubai recently at the Millennium Plaza Hotel where participants from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and France were introduced to a new set of GRI standards for sustainability reporting during the lectures, discussions, exercises, and case studies.

The course aimed at helping organisations align their business practices with long-term global sustainability goals and international society’s modern needs and expectations, delivered a new set of guides on the globally recognised GRI standards for sustainability reporting which could help companies in reporting and disclosing their performance in areas of environmental, social, and governance. Arabia CSR Network was the first accredited provider to conduct GRI training in UAE and the entire region.


Habiba Al Marashi, President and CEO, Arabia CSR Network, said: “It has been a great success for Arabia CSR and another step closer to bringing CSR and sustainability to the mainstream practice among companies in the region. The regional mix of participants from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and even France is testament to the growing awareness of businesses on the importance of reporting their CSR and sustainability efforts, particularly in the growth and reputation of companies. With this new achievement, we will continue to provide an excellent platform for learning and improvement for the region particularly on GRI standards, which is the international benchmark for sustainability reporting.”
