Social Auditing / Sustainability Assurance Case Studies

 
Case 1: We have conducted independent social / compliance audits for a variety of organizations. Our work has included developing indicators, methodologies, stakeholder engagement (customers, employees, suppliers, etc.) and providing assurance through verification of data. Our open and participatory working style has been well received by stakeholders and has resulted in greater buy-in from senior management. Most of our recommendations to improve systems and develop risk mitigation strategies have been implemented by the organization. 

Case 2: We performed a factory / facility assessments for a Canadian company looking to expand their operations in a Latin American country. While the local market showed promise we recommended against the investment based largely on our social and economic assessment. The company accepted our recommendation and expanded elsewhere in Latin America. It now serves the local market from another facility in Latin America.

Case 3: We conducted a sustainability assurance engagement for a major financial services firm which engaged directly with stakeholders to assess the reliability of the organizations disclosure and its adherence to accepted principles of accountability.

on social auditing...

Social auditing is “a process of measuring and reporting, in order to understand and ultimately improve, an organization’s social performance”. Michael Pierce

Audits are needed when accountability can no longer be sustained by informal relations of trust alone but must be formalized, made visible and subject to independent validation. Michael Power, London School of Economics
