Sustainability Report Assurance
Independent assurance to meet increased expectations
DEMONSTRATE YOUR ACCOUNTABILITY
Greater scrutiny of corporate governance and increased demand for transparency now means that corporate responsibility and sustainable development issues have gained a firm place on the agenda of boards and senior management worldwide.
New legislation and voluntary standards are continually introduced to ensure companies are accountable for their impact on the environment and society at large. Openly communicating this accountability to stakeholders can build trust and support, but only if the stakeholders are confident that the shared information is a true reflection of the company’s social, environmental and ethical performance.
