Independent Assurance & Certification

Independent Assurance & Certification

Our subsidiary ERM CVS has been providing independent assurance, verification, validation, certification, assessments and related training services to clients since 1996. We help organizations build trust and credibility, protect revenue, safeguard reputation and reduce risk.   

Growing demand for credible, independently-assured ESG data, targets, claims and certifications

Organizations need to holistically manage operational risks and demonstrate a commitment to continuous improvement, and global best practices.

To support the definition and delivery of decarbonization strategies, organizations need access to science-based solutions that enable the validation, verification and certification of their ESG targets and claims.

As demand for ESG data and disclosure grows, expanding regulation and escalating stakeholder expectations is intensifying the need for independent assurance. Proving the credibility of ESG data can act as a differentiator with customers and investors.

Integrity is everything when it comes to assurance. Third party providers need to be trusted by internal and external stakeholders and use recognized standards and models.

Increase stakeholder confidence in ESG programs and disclosures through independent assurance and certification.
