Sustainability reporting and assurance

Understand and communicate performance on sustainability issues.

The UK Government wants the country to be “at the leading edge of international developments in sustainability reporting.” But what does this look like? As standards proliferate and stakeholders demand more and better assurance on disclosures, reporters may need support when deciding where to focus time and budget on their sustainability reporting.

Our team has 20 years of experience offering sustainability reporting, assurance services and non-financial reporting support. We will give you confidence in your non-financial disclosures, across a variety of reporting formats, on topics from the gender pay gap to energy and carbon.

Our sustainability reporting and assurance services explained:

  • Sustainability report advice
    Our sustainability reporting services will support your internal teams to assess the impact of your existing sustainability policies, measure risk, and create value through your ESG reporting.
  • Climate change reporting
    Measure your performance on climate change by connecting your decarbonisation efforts to a recognised framework like the Taskforce for Climate Disclosures (TCFD).
  • Pay gap reporting
    In assessing the social performance of a company’s sustainability initiatives, pay gap reporting is of the utmost importance. Our sustainability assurance services will help you understand any existing inequities and how they can be best addressed.
  • Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) guidance
    Sustainability reporting in the UK, as per Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy guidelines, states that companies will be required to report publicly on their energy use and carbon emissions. We support clients to achieve compliance and contribute to the fight against climate change.
  • Sustainability assurance
    More businesses are choosing to receive assurance on their sustainability reporting, ensuring that their sustainability strategy is standing up to stakeholder scrutiny and meeting governance goals.
