Setting the right priorities

Companies are increasingly held accountable for their sustainability related performance. As a result, non-financial information is gradually receiving the same attention as financial information. Several jurisdictions, stock exchanges, standard setters and powerful investors are raising the bar for (mandatory) standardised and externally assured sustainability disclosure.

The LRQA Sustainability Disclosure Service maps the current reporting practice against external and internal requirements (e.g. regulations, industry standards, financial market expectations, strategy monitoring needs) and supports clients throughout the process up to the published report.

Our approach sets the right priorities, defines meaningful KPIs and content, builds a sound reporting structure, sets up efficient and effective data management and documents the process in an assurance-ready manner.

Sustainability disclosure approach

Our Sustainability Disclosure Services are customised to the client’s starting point and requirements. They include developing a concept for stand-alone or integrated reporting, defining and creating the content and ensuring compliance with external standards and regulations. We leverage our long-standing expertise and global coverage to ensure that the disclosure holds against current best practices, standards and regulation in Europe, Asia, Middle East and the Americas.
