Sustainability Reporting and Advisory
PBE works closely with forward-looking companies to help them in communicating their sustainability stories through a cohesive report format. We assist companies in coming up with a quality sustainability report that adheres to the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) G4 Guidelines.
These standards enable companies to set clear and comprehensive goals, to measure and track critical areas of performance, to manage various risks and impacts, and to take advantage of emerging opportunities.
In addition, sustainability reports give a company’s shareholders more insight into its overall value proposition and encourage them to actively participate in growing the company’s brand.
Eco-safe Driving and Fleet Management Training
These programs are systematic strategies that allow drivers and fleet owners to reduce fuel consumption, to lessen carbon emissions, to increase fuel efficiency, and to save on operational costs through data assessment, module development, and program institutionalization.
What we do
GRI Standards Certified Training Course
The course will introduce the participants to the elements of a good sustainability report using GRI guidelines, giving the participants a thorough knowledge on GRI principles, reporting process, and standard and specific disclosures.
What we do
PBE periodically holds intensive three-day training that are certified by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
These trainings cover the GRI Standards, giving participants a thorough knowledge of GRI’s principles, reporting process, and standard disclosures. Workshops and group activities are also incorporated in the training design to improve the understanding of the participants of the topics being discussed.
All participants receive a copy of essential GRI publications and learn how to apply the five-step sustainability reporting process using global and local perspectives. They also receive an internationally recognized certificate from the GRI.
Aside from providing fresh perspectives on how to present financial achievements, these guidelines also allow companies to evaluate their social and environmental performances in harmony with their financial targets.
Overall, this is not only good for the planet and company stakeholders. The GRI process also presents new opportunities for companies to improve their financial bottom line and brand reputation.
Developing Effective Solid Waste Management Systems
PBE extends its expertise to the development, implementation, and assessment of proper solid waste management systems that are specific to company operational sites.
