The ESG and regulatory landscape is maturing, and companies need the right tools to keep up. Carbon accounting has become a high-stakes process for businesses—many jurisdictions now require assurance for climate-related disclosures.  

Greenhouse gas emissions assurance involves an audit of company emissions inventories and auditors require insight into company data and calculation methods. It’s a rigorous process akin to financial audits and centralized digital systems are critical to meeting assurance requirements.

In this webinar, our team walks through Sustain.Life’s new verification and assurance support feature, which enables companies to quickly share their emissions data with assurance providers. These innovative features create more efficient processes—companies no longer have to request or search for the information auditors will require.  

The support features enable corporate clients and their assurance providers to replicate emissions calculations, trace data sources through precise citations, and verify emission factors for their scope 1 and 2 emissions in Sustain.Life.

Sustain.Life’s sustainability reporting software also equips auditors with the level of information organization required to replicate emissions outputs.
