Our Independence

This is the eighth year that  we have verified the sustainability report.  Our work is solely related to independent assurance activities and training programs related to auditing techniques and approaches.  Our processes are designed to ensure that the work we undertake with clients is free from bias and conflict of interest.  We provide no consultancy related services to the company.
