The Global Reporting Initiative recommends external assurance for sustainability reports. An external assurance allows a third party to assess whether the sustainability report provides a good representation of the organization’s sustainability performance. It also assesses the extent to which the organizations have applied the GRI Reporting Framework (including the Reporting Principles).

An external assurance significantly adds to any organization’s sustainability report’s credibility. The assurance exercise also results in a set of recommendations that help the organization enhance its sustainability and reporting strategy.

Based on its experience in evaluating CSR projects and sustainability reports and also conducting GRI trainings for organizations based across the MENA region, ACSRN offers independent third party quality assurance and verification services for organizations compiling their annual sustainability & CSR reports in line with the GRI’s guidelines.
