June 11, 2020 – Webinar: The Assurance landscape & Assurance readiness

11 June 2020 - Webinar

On Thursday, the 11th of June from 10am to 11am (CEST), we will host a webinar on the assurance landscape and assurance readiness. 

We often notice that companies struggle with data quality and (preparing for) assurance by an external auditor. The costs and the burden of this on the organization can be high. At the same time the demand for reliable data ever increases: be it for accurately measuring and steering one’s own performance, but also as a result of external forces: (upcoming) legislation, demands from ratings, benchmarks and from customers and value chain partners.

This webinar will introduce the various possibilities to have your sustainability data critically looked at to increase data reliability. From assurance and external validation to internal sustainability audit. First of all, Sustainalize will guide you through what happens in the non-financial / ESG reporting world and why the demand for reliable data has never been bigger – increasing, in fact. We will briefly touch upon relevant trends in the market, (upcoming) legislation, demands from ratings, benchmarks as well as clients and value chain partners.

The webinar will then make you familiar with different ways to increase your sustainability / impact data quality. Providing practical examples from businesses and good practices, the webinar will answer questions such as:

  • How can data quality be improved? Internally or with external support?
  • What is the benefit and what is the downside of seeking external assurance?
  • How to prepare for external assurance?
  • What other options exist to have sustainability data validated? And how to decide?

This webinar will be presented by our colleagues Anja and Julian. Also, guest speakers will share their practical experiences. Furthermore, you will get the chance to discuss your needs and experiences with sustainability data validation.

Invited to this webinar are sustainability managers and internal auditors.

Take a look at our blog ‘The Big Five challenges in reporting reliable sustainability data’ as a nice read on the topic!
