One pager outlining iCompli's approach to sustainability assurance in 10 steps - starting from client & industry research all the way through to the final assurance statement.

STEP 1: CLIENT AND INDUSTRY RESEARCH We take the time to understand the client’s business and unique sustainability challenges. STEP 2: MANAGEMENT INTERVIEWS The iCompli process involves working with persons responsible for collecting and collating reporting data, as well as those drafting the Report content. STEP 3:ANALYSIS & ASSESSMENT We analyze your most recent Sustainability/Integrated Annual Report against the Global Reporting Initiative’s 127 performance indicators and prepare an interim management report. STEP 4: MATERIALITY REVIEW Materiality is determined through a comprehensive, confidential, on-site review of information and Board and Committee packets circulated throughout the reporting period. This internal materiality scan is supplemented by review of the company’s stakeholder external communications such as media/blog analysis and a verification of message alignment between the ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ story. STEP 5: PRINCIPLES EXPLORATION Following the materiality assessment, we conduct a detailed exploration of each of the three AccountAbility AA1000 APS principles – Inclusivity, Materiality and Responsiveness. This typically involves a series of interviews with individuals directly connected to the reporting process, including stakeholder engagement and materiality. STEP 6: REPORT REVIEW Based upon the materiality scan, we review the initial draft of the Report to confirm that material issues are addressed. STEP 7: PRELIMINARY GRI LEVEL ASSESSMENT We then conduct a GRI Application Level assessment of the draft Report to determine where gaps exist between what is currently being reported and what is required in order to meet your GRI Application Level objective. STEP 8: DRAFT ASSURANCE STATEMENT We prepare a draft Third Party Assurance Statement for review by your internal team. STEP 9: FINAL GRI LEVEL ASSESSMENT Before going to print, we perform a final GRI Application Level assessment of the ‘Editor’s Proof’ to confirm that what is being reported meets your GRI Application Level objective. STEP 10: FINAL ASSURANCE STATEMENT The process concludes with the issuance of a final Assurance Statement to be included in the Report. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 THE ICOMPLI 10-STEP ASSURANCE PROCESS ABOUT ICOMPLI iCompli is a division of BPA Worldwide, a not-for-profit auditing organization established in 1931 to audit circulation for publishers, advertisers and their agencies.
