Why Should You Audit Your Organization’s Sustainability Reporting?
Elaine Nissley, Principal and Leader of our Internal Audit & Management Consulting team and Brian Johnson, Senior Consultant explored the importance and associated risks in the areas of environment, social, and governance arenas. They looked at sustainability reporting, why it is important, and the role of Internal Audit.
In the wake of the ongoing COVID crisis, the demand for organizations to address ESG types of risks is on the rise. Internal Audit (IA) can add value to the process by being an advisor and providing an objective and independent assessment of the organization’s efforts to address ESG risks. IA assist with the development of a credible system of internal controls. The independent assessment and opinion can provide assurance to both internal and external stakeholders.
