As in previous years we’ve had all of the data in our non-financial performance scorecard independently assured.
This gives us confidence in making decisions and in communicating with our stakeholders. As the leading provider of assurance for FTSE 100 sustainability reports, we also feel we should lead by example.
Our internal audit team provide assurance for all of the data in the scorecard, together with the associated narrative in our Annual Report.
Crowe UK, our financial auditor, provide limited assurance for our non-financial data each year to the ISAE 3000 standard, and – for greenhouse gas emissions – to the ISAE 3410 standard. Their 2018 review covered all of the metrics and targets in the scorecard, which also contains their full independent assurance report.
Our Reporting Criteria document provides further details of the metrics reported, and forms the basis for Crowe UK’s review.
