The two day certified training program aims to disseminate knowledge on sustainability reporting around the world and is tailored for corporate responsibility/ sustainability, public relations, communications, marketing, human resources, and environmental professionals as well as general managers.

Schema has been active in guiding a number of leading companies in the MENA region in their sustainability reporting journey in compliance with the GRI standards, and as such, helped them issue their G3 and G3.1 based reports over the past few years.

Schema’s CEO and Founder, Ms Maali Qasem Khader, has contributed towards the issuance of the G4 guidelines of the GRI reporting framework by being a fully engaged Arab representative on the G4 workforces managed by GRI.

“We continue our support to the GRI with the G4 guidelines and training on them in the MENA region and in every way we can promote the practice of sustainability and corporate responsibility reporting based on the GRI guidelines and indicators”, said Ms Khader.
