Capacity Building of Green Reporters under the National Green Reporting System (NGRS) of Sri Lanka Two capacity building programmes were held


Ministry of Environment has developed the National Green Reporting System of Sri Lanka in 2011. One Hundred Twenty (120) companies have already associated with the NGRSSL under Tier 1 to Tier 5 levels.Under establishment of NGRSSL, it was decided to build capacity of the entities associated in the system in order to develop quality and accurate reports. Since Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels Companies have no previous experience on developing Reports under NGRS, Sustainable Development Division of the State Ministry of Environment has been scheduled to be improved the capacity of Green Reporters for developing comprehensive quality green reports under the NGRS.

Capacity Building on NGRS

As it is mandatory to obtain green reports for the reporting period from 1st January to 31st December, in each year, the entity should identify the indicators and key performance should be reported as per the NGRS Guidelines. However, the Companies are registered in Tier 1 and Tier 2 level of NGRS have inadequate capacity in paring Green Reports. Therefore, two capacity building programmes were held September 2015 and November 2015 at the Centre for Banking Studies, Rajagiriya.

The following outcome was obtained due to the capacity building programmes

  • Thirty five officers from the registered companies under Tier 2 level were trained during these two sessions.
  • Training module to conduct the capacity building programme for Green Reporters in five Tiers were developed.
  • Preparation of Brief Guidelines for Preparation of Sustainability Report for future development for NGRS.
