Sustainability issues are taking centre stage. Environmental and social related risks consistently rank amongst the top assessed risks for businesses, economies and countries worldwide. Companies are facing increasing pressure to address these risks, with the key drivers being newly formed regulations and standards, stakeholder action and market dynamics.
A strategic approach to sustainability issues can help organisations unlock many value creation opportunities. Value creation is the goal of all companies, but corporate value creation is not always aligned with value creation for society as a whole. Sustainability assurance helps focus organisational strategy and operations towards integrated corporate and societal value.
