Maximizing the Value of Assurance

Wednesday, 18 July 2018

The third webinar in ERM's series focused on how to increase the value of external reporting through assurance, focusing on what really matters: investor grade data, performance against long-term goals, and yes, a higher score for CDP and DJSI.

With stakeholder pressure for transparency in corporate non-financial reporting increasing, independent third party assurance adds extra confidence for stakeholders while enabling companies to improve their sustainability reporting systems and management.
