Organisations seeking to substantiate their communication and compliance levels upon applying the most common international guidelines such as Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) will benefit greatly from Sustainability Reporting Assessment.
TÜV SÜD can measure your organisation’s data collection system and the accuracy of the results in the report as well as the degree of adherence to guidelines and the levels applied. The result from this assessment is included within the Sustainability Report.
TÜV SÜD’s unique verification methodology stems from the experience and know-how from implementing international standards such as AA1000, GRI, ISO 26000, and the certification of management systems worldwide.
With TÜV SÜD recognised by AccountAbility International as an ‘Assurance Provider’, TÜV SÜD is able to verify company statements and actions for engaging local communities and stakeholders according to the AA1000 SES (Stakeholder Engagement Standard) guidelines.
Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
With TÜV SÜD’s international expertise, we can conduct assessments adhering to GRI level of application for both GRI G.3 and G.4. With the release of the GRI G.4 guidelines, it is critical that the “materiality” aspects and methods of identification are robust and accurate.
The assessment of Sustainability Reporting is structured and managed similar to the external communication of an organisation’s CSR performances.
Sustainability Reporting Assessment allows companies to have an in-depth look at their performance indicators and help them to commit to long-term goals. To achieve their goal, the decision makers of the company will have many considerations, including the strategy and direction the company will take, the best way to build a decision-making process, and measures to identify and minimise risks.
By managing scrutiny on the social, economic and environmental aspects of the organisation’s operations, the results derived from the assessment will substantiate the company’s high levels of compliance and in turn, drive confidence in investors and customers alike.
