Quality control

An external audit of your report.

Increase quality and credibility

Are you already reporting according to one of the frameworks GHG, GRI or ÅRL? Then you have the option to let us do an audit of your report. A quality review of your reports according to the AA1000 standard, where we are a licensed agency. The process is carried out according to the standard framework and we set up a plan together. In short, it is about doing some sampling in calculations that have been made, and a control that each standard have the necessary parts reported. The process can be compared with an audit in connection with a financial statement. Based on the review, we then produce a report where we provide suggestions on what could possibly be improved. We also write a quality statement that you can attach to your sustainability report or other reports. It will increase the quality and credibility to your stakeholders.
