Assurance & Reporting

Shaping your future as a responsible business

Sustainability is emerging as a source of competitive advantage. For organizations to gain this advantage, it is important to shift towards a focus on long term value. This offers leverage for a step forward. Deloitte can help you attain insight in your strategic non-financial topics and become a purpose driven organization.

Your challenge

The risk and opportunity sustainability offers is a top-of-mind issue across the C-suite. Affecting your strategic, compliance and reputational agenda, successfully exploring opportunities that are connected to occurring sustainability risks and opportunities is therefore key. The challenge is to approach this in an effective manner, since the opportunities can offer real long term value creation when financial and non-financial capitals are taken into account.

Our solution

We can help you seize these opportunities by enabling you to manage and measure your non-financial impacts and engage in long-term value creation through three specific sets of services:

Assurance & Reporting

As a responsible purpose-driven organization, you want to embed environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in the management and assessment of your performance. This enables you to measure your progress and share your purpose journey with your stakeholders. But how do you quantify and measure ESG factors? And how are those reported in a balanced, comparable and reliable way?

Reporting advisory

We can support in translating ESG performance to reliable and balanced (external) reporting telling the real story. We give guidance on how to develop and structure disclosures, considering leading reporting principles, material content (including identifying material topics with stakeholder input) and integrated reporting based on the newest insights from the fast changing ESG landscape.

Assurance

We provide external assurance on ESG information in integrated annual reports and ESG reports to guarantee robust and reliable reporting. Our experts have extensive knowledgen of the externally recognized standards and frameworks such as IAASB, GRI, INREV, TCFD, and the EU Non- Financial Reporting Directive. 

Other services

Next to those three main areas we also provide other sustainability-related services, for example on circular economy, responsible supply chain (e.g. ecosystem related issues with climate change or supply chain resilience), implementation of the SDGs and assurance and reporting of covid-19 responses to stakeholders. We help businesses with developing circular business models to support the transition towards a low-carbon economy, with increasing responsibility throughout the whole value chain and with translating the SDGs into strategic pillars in order to create long-term value. 

Why Deloitte

In each of the services listed above, we combine our in-depth knowledge of non-financial topics, internal and external reporting and regulatory measures with an integral organizational approach. We bring added value by translating strategy and regulation into efficient and effective implementation in the organization. Our industry expertise and international network ensures that we can tailor-make solutions to complex challenges both on a national and an international scale and for your type of organization.
