What is involved in the Report Review & GRI Assessment?

Written by 

The final review and assessment process involves the following steps:

  • Review the initial draft of the Sustainability/Integrated Annual Report, and based on a completed Materiality Scan Report, confirm that material issues are addressed.
  • Conduct a GRI “In accordance” option assessment of the draft(s) of the Report, to determine where gaps exist between what is currently being reported, and what is required in order to meet your stated GRI “In accordance” objective.
  • Draft a Third Party Assurance Statement for review by your internal teams.
  • Before going to print, conduct a final GRI “In accordance” option assessment of the final Editor’s Proof, determine if any gaps exist between what is currently being reported, and what is required in order to meet your stated GRI “In accordance” objective. In most cases, this results in recommendations for additional content to be included as a supplemental document to support your Sustainability/Integrated Annual Report via email or download and notated in the Comprehensive GRI Content Index Table.
