The “Project Manager of Sustainability Report / Integrated Report” – PMIR – Project aims to map and train a new professional figure in charge of managing the sustainability reporting process within companies. The Project was born in response to Directive 2014/95/EU, which, although addressing only large companies, represents an important step towards greater awareness of both sustainability and the positive values of sustainable practices, including those performed by small and medium-sized enterprises, institutions and non-profit organizations.
The PMIR is a professional profile with a cross-linking role between the different areas of business, a figure able to coordinate and implement the preparation of complex documents describing the company from multiple points of view.
This figure should possess skills in business administration, to interpret and evaluate the financial statements of a company, but also transversal, management, project management, as well as statistical and soft skills.
Once the professional figure was mapped, the project partners defined the training content for each area of knowledge and the IT tools needed to offer online training to participants from different European countries. At the end of online training and after having passed the final exam, participants with the best results will be able to live a 10-days of on-field training experience in a European company with experience in sustainability reporting.
