Sustainability Report Assurance
In recent years, corporate environmental and social responsibility has risen to the forefront of companies’ concerns. 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.
Working with an independent body such as Bureau Veritas 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.
As each company’s sustainability strategy is unique, Bureau Veritas Sustainability Services Team delivers personalised and robust assurance solutions that reflect each client’s individual needs.
Our methodology incorporates recognised best practices and we constantly review and adapt our internal protocols to align with existing standards and frameworks, including the AA1000 Assurance Standard, GRI G4 Reporting Guidelines and the ISAE3000 standard for auditing of non-financial information.
