As global leaders look for agreements and commitments to the achievement of environmental and sustainability goals, companies, large and small, are determined to play their part. At the same time, stakeholders such as investors, staff, customers, and suppliers seek reliable and accurate ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) information that helps them to make well-informed decisions.
LRQA can independently verify your data, information and reports to drive credibility and confidence with the people that matter most to you. Delivered against the world’s leading standards and schemes or through a bespoke program built around your specific requirements, our verification services will help push your performance forward. We can work with any standard that your organization or stakeholders require, including ISO 14064-1, GHG Protocol, PAS 2060, ISO 14067 or AA1000.
The GHG Protocol gives organizations a framework to measure and report on GHG emissions to support their objectives. Its popularity is thanks to its far-reaching consultation in conjunction with the World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
We’re recognized supporters of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the Assurance Statements we provide are accepted by global frameworks such as CDP, ESRS, SASB and GRI.
Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards are also among the most widely used sustainability reporting standards across the globe. GRI is an independent organization that helps businesses and other organizations to report on sustainability impacts in a consistent way that enables them to take positive action.
Benefits of LRQA verification
Trust and transparency
An LRQA Assurance Statement gives stakeholders and investors’ confidence that data is accurate, representative and benchmarkable. This helps them make informed decisions based on a company’s strategy, performance, risks and growth opportunities. We can also support your existing supply chain verification programs – or work with you to build new ones that meet your specific needs.
Customers are choosing products from companies that they trust to act responsibly and sustainably. By disclosing LRQA verified information, companies can raise sustainability scores, enhance brand value and improve attractiveness to potential investors.
LRQA verification can reveal inefficiencies, waste, data gaps, errors or misstatements in a process that identifies cost savings and opportunities for continuous improvement in companies and their supply chains.
LRQA’s expert and highly experienced verification teams are able to ensure that data and information is provided to demonstrate compliance with both existing and forthcoming regulations.
