Smart Paper

The Smart Assurance Index 2012

We are very pleased to present the 3rd year of Carbon Smart’s report into the state of sustainability assurance in the UK. We are delighted to see that many of the issues we have raised over the last two reports are now gaining traction and we are proud that this work has contributed to an improvement in the quality of sustainability assurance in the UK

This year’s research assessed 2011 assurance statements looking for improvements on previous years. In addition to this we investigated the drivers and barriers behind the current state of sustainability assurance surveyed FTSE 350 companies and assurance providers for their opinions, to help establish where the value of the service lies and what the barriers to further uptake are.
