Sustainability Report Assurance

Gain stakeholders’ trust and enhance your company’s reputation with Sustainability Report Assurance (SRA)

THE SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGE

In recent years, corporate environmental and social responsibility has risen to the forefront of company concerns.

Increases in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) investment, more scrutiny of corporate governance and a greater demand for transparency now means that Corporate Social 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 made 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 the shared information is accurate in representing the company’s social, environmental and ethical performance.

Sustainability Report Assurance (SRA) with an independent body

Working with an independent body provides an objective view of your sustainability reporting and reassures stakeholders that the information is accurate and free of bias.

Beyond verifying report data, independent assurance also ensures that the right kind of information is communicated.
