Independent Assurance

As both the breadth and availability of non-financial information continue to proliferate and as its use for decision making by third parties expands, the need for dependable data management, more reliable reporting and better disclosure is rising.

Through independent assurance organisations can:

  • enhance the credibility of their disclosures related to corporate responsibility and sustainability activities
  • Inform stakeholders of the progress made towards set objectives;
  • provide management and those charged with governance comfort over the quality of the information provided;

The subject matter of our assurance can take a number of forms, but frequently focuses on:

  • Integrated Reports, including environmental, social, economic and governance disclosures
  • Sustainability or corporate responsibility reports, including performance disclosures, data, targets and KPIs relating to environmental, social, economic and governance topics
  • Adherence to principles as defined by external or internal standards or codes of conduct
  • Culture Audit
  • Specific communications made to particular stakeholders or the board related to nonfinancial performance
  • Claims related to social and environmental outcomes of specific products or services
  • Disclosures linked to human rights and the UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs)
  • Greenhouse gas emissions including organizational or life cycle product greenhouse gas emissions inventories
  • Carbon credits or offsets issues under voluntary and/or regulatory standards
  • Disclosures proposed by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures  (TCFD)
  • Green or social impact bonds against agreed criteria
  • Conflict minerals due diligence measures
