The non-financial performance of organizations is increasingly relevant to the various stakeholders, namely the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.
With the publication of European Directive 2022/2464 on corporate sustainability reporting, the number of companies required to report sustainability information has increased, and the reported information shall be verified by an independent third party.
APCER provides a service for verifying reports and sustainability reports prepared in accordance with the GRI - Global Reporting Initiative standards or other recognized reporting standards, as well as those defined by the organization. These globally recognized benchmarks identify the principles for organizations to make their activity and management more sustainable through setting goals, measuring their performance and managing change.
These standards also identify the contents for the preparation of reports and sustainability reports, through which organizations disclose their positive and negative impacts on the environment, society and economy, as well as the commitments assumed to improve their performance.
For this purpose, APCER performs these verifications, in accordance with AccountAbility references, namely the AA1000 Assurance Standard, being a verification body licensed by that entity.
