ESG data underpins the fast-evolving landscape of sustainable finance and credibility of public sustainability information and ESG data is more important than ever. Independent assurance is a real value asset when tackling limitations of ESG data. The next wave of ESG data is already emerging, enabled by digital innovation, new sources of disclosure and novel forms of third-party verification.
Independent assurance for public ESG data is a marketplace expectation. By providing external assurance of disclosures and of the processes undertaken in producing those disclosures, assurance can increase the confidence of capital providers and other stakeholders using non-financial information to guide their decision-making. But what is assurance? How does it work? And how is it beneficial to users of non-financial information?
This DNV GL & Mitopro webinar will discuss what assurance is, how the process of assurance works and what organizations need to consider when seeking to procure assurance services that are ‘fit for purpose.The webinar will provide practical examples of how to
- build trust over the validity of sustainability performance
- demonstrate credibility of disclosed information
- ensure material and high-quality data for decision-making and communication to various stakeholders.
- use new approaches and digital technologies to increase data credibility, ensure compliance and drive business resilience.
The webinar will be facilitated by Curt Ruokolahti, DNV GL Digital Assurance and Supply Chain and Mikael Niskala, Mitopro.
For whom: The event is aimed at all professionals in the field of ESG data, non-financial disclosure, and sustainability reporting.
