What is Sustainability Assurance?

Sustainability assurance refers to the process of verifying and validating a company’s sustainability performance and reporting to ensure that it is accurate, reliable, and meets certain standards.

This involves assessing and verifying a company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, which can include factors such as energy use, waste management, human rights, labor practices, and community engagement.

The goal of Sustainability Assurance is to provide stakeholders, such as investors, customers, and the public, with confidence in a company’s sustainability performance and reporting. This helps to build trust and accountability, and can ultimately contribute to the long-term success and viability of the company.


Evaluate a company’s impact on the environment, such as its use of natural resources, carbon emissions, waste management, and pollution prevention.

Social Sustainability

A company’s impact on society, including labor practices, human rights, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, and customer satisfaction.

Governance Sustainability

Evaluate a company’s management structure and policies, such as executive compensation, board diversity, risk management, and transparency.
