Assurance Services

Assures accurate reporting and increased sustainability scoring


Independent and authoritative validation of your green-house gas emissions (GHGs) and non-financial reporting (aka sustainability reporting).



The Business Case for Assurance – as valued by CDP

In CDP scoring, verification / assurance accounts for:

11-16% of the total Disclosure points

3-4% of total Awareness points

18-21% of total Management points

9-11% of total Leadership points

 Your organisation can only qualify for the ‘A List’ if Scope 1 & 2 emissions are verified and full points are achieved for questions 8.6 and 8.7 



If your organisation falls within the scope of the Mandatory GHG Reporting  and/or Mandatory Non Financial Reporting  requirements you may wish us to verify your carbon footprint and also advise on its presentation within the Director's Report.
