Learning & Development
Through its Foundation, Net Balance aims to share its expertise and enable organisations to accelerate their sustainability journey. We offer a range of short courses and masterclasses that are grounded in our experience across the full spectrum of organisational sustainability. To augment our own expertise, we regularly partner with other organisations to develop engaging and informative sessions that provide the right mix of theoretical and practical content.
Our key learning and development services include:
Global Reporting Initiative
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a network-based organisation that develops and supports the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework. Our GRI Certified training programs are designed to help report makers and users utilise the GRI G4 Framework and GRI reports more effectively. With extensive experience gained working with some of Australia's largest organisations, Net Balance can provide relevant and meaningful case study examples and deliver regionally appropriate advice and guidance on sustainability reporting practices.
Social Impact and Social Return On Investment
How do you measure the impact of your investment in social programs?
Do you need a tool to help design your social programs and investment?
Are you still limited to measuring inputs?
Our social impact training programs can help with these challenges. Whether you’re just starting out, or an experienced practitioner, Net Balance provides a range of training courses to build your capacity in social impact.
The Prince of Wales’s Business and Sustainability Programme
Delivered in collaboration with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, this intensive residential seminar for senior executives has a 20-year track record of transformative impact.
Masterclasses and other training
From time to time, Net Balance offers the opportunity to spend time with acknowledged global experts.
Recent examples include:
Pavan Sukhdev and Prof. Bob Costanza on understanding ecosystem services and accounting for externalities.

We also offer various one-off or occasional programs across a range of relevant topics, for example in energy management.
