Build organisations’
Internal capacity

CIG helps organisations build their internal capacity through training, coaching, and the design of internal management and policy processes. With a trained executive coach on its team, CIG offers one-on-one coaching and mentoring for sustainability and social performance managers and leaders, as well as team coaching for teams involved in implementing sustainability processes.

We are experienced in helping organisations develop their internal policies, standards, management processes, and competency frameworks related to social and human rights impacts, risks, and benefits.

CIG has developed the competency development tool SPGrow360 to support the professional development of social performance practitioners.

CIG offers a range of training courses, from introductory to advanced level, to address specific social and human rights performance challenges.

Our course participants come from private sector companies, multilateral banks, investment funds, government and state-owned companies, civil society and NGOs, as well as universities. Our pedagogical approach, developed over many years of experience, is centered on immersing course participants in real-world cases, addressing real problems faced by participants, and facilitating practical work and reflection on practice.

CIG is experienced in a range of training delivery models, including face-to-face, video-based, online, and blended models. We use innovative teaching tools including interactive software, games, group and individual exercises.
