About this masterclass 

Businesses today face heightened expectations for transparency about how they play their part in society and the world, with profit being only one of many criteria by which their contribution is measured. The impact a company has on its employees, society, and the planet is gaining increasing importance with a wider group of stakeholders. Integrated reporting, which encompasses elements of traditional financial, sustainability, and governance reporting, represents a growing trend that responds to these new expectations.

Some companies voluntarily produce reports that have some of the characteristics of integrated reporting, but few jurisdictions require this. There are no mandated reporting standards or frameworks in place, but a number of initiatives are underway by governmental and non-governmental groups to develop such frameworks, principles, codes, and management systems. The EU Commission’s proposal for a Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is a good example that envisages the adoption of EU sustainability reporting standards.

So why is Sustainability Assurance important? Conducting an independent review over the extra-financial / sustainability disclosures ensures the rigor and integrity of the data and the way in which the data has been collected, governed and controlled.

This masterclass gives the audience an exclusive insight on why VELUX has committed to perform reasonable assurance engagements on all of the company’s Sustainability KPI’s and a peek into the engine room to learn more about the practical aspects of this work in relation to reporting.
