The onset of mandatory non-financial reporting has placed more emphasis on assurance to provide greater confidence in the credibility of organisation’s reporting.
Non-financial information assurance
Mazars professionals will be on hand to assure your non-financial information and provide recommendations for improvement through the relevance and value of your information.
Independent assurance can:
- enhance the credibility of 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;
Assurance frequently focuses upon:
- Integrated Reports, including environmental, social, governance (ESG) and economic 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
