Greenhouse gas (GHG) and wider environmental reporting can be risky. Mandatory reporting under SECR and equivalent schemes means key information about your business is being pushed into the public domain.
For many businesses, environmental disclosure is a new and complex endeavour and they recognise the crucial role third party verification can play in mitigating the risk of getting it wrong.
After all – businesses don’t put unaudited financial data into the public domain – so why would they do this for environmental data?
Why verify environmental data?

I was impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that our data set was analysed in. Presenting an extensive data set in an easy to use format was of great value in communicating the outcome of the work internally, and prioritising areas of the supply chain for future action.

Avieco has been the preferred environmental consultant since the beginning of our journey to become a sustainable company. Dentsu Aegis has worked with Avieco’s experts on various areas, such as carbon footprint reporting and assurance support, and recently also advised us how to switch our global network to renewable electricity. The team’s expertise on environmental sustainability is impressive, and the work delivered is always of highest standard.

Avieco informatively led us through the processes needed to reduce our carbon footprint. With their clear and concise advice we have been able to effectively reduce our energy and waste levels. Avieco made the complex notion of energy efficiency into a manageable and achievable reality

Avieco delivered exactly the workshop we needed to get our sustainability team and regional leads on the same page when it comes to ‘market-based’ reporting. It’s a challenging area to tackle for a global business – particularly when we operate in a number of markets where there is little or no choice in terms of energy purchasing. Avieco has given us the knowledge and tools to ensure we get our disclosures right – they really exceeded my expectations for what we could achieve in one afternoon!

We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
