Sustainability: Assurance and Reporting
Sustainability reporting is voluntary, but there is an increasing move by governments to make it mandatory. They recognise that a resilient economic system is one that accounts for long-term risks, including environmental, social and economic impacts
What is Assurance and Reporting?
Reporting and verifying your company’s environmental, social and governance performance in a standalone sustainability report, within the annual report or integrated reporting.
We can help you to:
- Undertake internal audits to gauge the effectiveness of your internal controls and measures
- Provide independent assurance of the data in your sustainability report as well as assurance for regulatory performance purposes, such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions; we’ll also verify and certify your data against social and environmental benchmarks in line with market standards like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), GHG Protocol, and AA1000
- Support your submissions to sustainability indices by helping you to interpret the questionnaire before submission; we'll also identify any gaps to improve your position in the rankings
- Review your current reporting against best practices, identify operational improvements and move it beyond compliance to include future-looking analysis and strategies
- Align measurable sustainability objectives with your corporate strategy based on financial, operational and regulatory performance measures
- Assess how the life cycle of your products and services might impact your sustainability goals
