According to the latest Edelman Trust Barometer, trust is in crisis. The suspicion of greenwash is increasingly fueled through non-credible communication, the misuse of sustainability for marketing, and corporate scandals. Investors and other stakeholders are concerned about a growing ‘credibility gap’.

Robust data, reliable facts and focus on material issues are vital to close this gap. Independent audits and assurance provide additional confidence, add tangible business value and are rewarded by sustainability indices, such as DJSI and CDP.

Join us for a 30 minute webinar on 5th April to find out how sustainability reporting and the assurance process generate added value, without being a daunting task.

Our speakers:

Brett Tomkins from Deloitte will draw on his experience and will share insights on how to get most value from the assurance process or audit. Brett is Audit Partner at Deloitte New Zealand and Emeritus Chair of the Sustainable Business Council.

Barbara Nebel from thinkstep will share practical tips on how to prepare your data and information for the next assurance or audit process, and how to avoid common pitfalls and ensure an efficient process. Barbara is Managing Director of thinkstep in Australasia
