Why Sustainability Reporting Assurance?


The production of the Sustainability Report is a step in fulfilling an organisation’s accountability to its internal and external stakeholders, however without the proper internal controls for the underlying information system and assurance of the information contained in the reports, the quality of the information cannot be gauged. Assurance of these reports could ensure transparency, reliability and impartial reporting which balances both the negative as well as the positive impacts of organisational activities.
