FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 7, 2014

San Diego, CA- March 7, 2014: In building upon its success as a GRI Certified Training Partner, ISOS Group, LLC intends to launch CDP training sessions across the United States following CDP's 8th Annual Spring Workshop slated for March 17th. As the world's largest voluntary greenhouse gas emissions reporting organization, CDP works on behalf of 767 institutional investors representing US$92 trillion in assets to assess risk across a broad spectrum of sustainability considerations, including climate change risk in their investment portfolios. CDP provides a transformative global system for thousands of companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share environmental information. As an official Silver Consultancy Education & Training Partner, ISOS is set to deliver full day (8 hour) in-person sessions aimed at facilitating improvements in climate change disclosure. "The international organization has created a lot of traction and the time is ripe for taking disclosure to the next level. Education is key to better understanding the guidance documents, scoring criteria and best-practices," says ISOS Co-Founder, Alexandru Georgescu.

Since 2008, ISOS has trained nearly 2,000 in GRI-based Sustainability Reporting- ranging from corporate representatives, non-profits, government agencies, academics and consultants. Nancy Mancilla, ISOS Co-Founder and lead educator adds, "We are excited about being able to help satisfy the growing appetite for practical knowledge in this space and look forward to serving CDP – just as we have done for GRI over the years."

"ISOS Group's excellent track record in providing guidance and instruction to a wide variety of stakeholders on sustainability reporting make them an ideal partner to provide these new CDP education & training sessions, which are designed to help companies improve the quality of their CDP climate change disclosure." says Stephen Donofrio, Vice President, Partnerships & Innovation at CDP.

CDP has opened this pilot initiative up to only a handful of entities. Committed to building a more sustainable economy, ISOS feels honored to play a role in expanding CDP's mission. In addition to ISOS' ongoing team of trainers, GHG inventory experts Coto-Consulting and climate risk consultancy Four Twenty Seven LLC will contribute to course content and delivery on greenhouse gas accounting, verification and risk mitigation.
