Independent assurance

Ensuring confidence in our processes

Independent review and assurance of our ESG metrics is crucial to helping stakeholders place trust in our ESG report and in the processes that underpin our ESG strategy. It supports our commitment to openness and transparency.

For our 2021 reporting, we were pleased to appoint KPMG LLP as our new assurance provider, covering an expanded scope of metrics.

We welcome KPMG’s valuable feedback as we seek to continuously improve the robustness of our processes and provide our stakeholders with increased confidence in our reporting. Our approach to independent assurance builds on our long history of open engagement with our stakeholders.
