  • The drivers and benefits of reporting and verification,
  • How to take the first steps,
  • The barriers that need to be overcome,
  • And, the importance of choosing the right standards for your organisation.

“Everyone starts at a different point in their sustainability reporting and verification journey. Don’t fear what you are going to find out from the exercise. A willingness to be transparent is the first step.”
- Chris Patterson, Global Sustainability Program Manager, Uber
