Our services

Each information assessment is conducted within a defined scope using transparent, applicable criteria. These may be (international) standards or publicly disclosed requirements. Within this framework, we offer independent assessments through:

  • Validation: will it work?

A thorough, independent evaluation of whether planned activities and benefits objectively and demonstrably meet applicable requirements.

 

  • Verification: does it work? 

A thorough, independent evaluation of whether the applicable requirements have been objectively and demonstrably fulfilled. 

 

  • Due diligence: how does it work?

A thorough, independent examination to enable sound decision-making. Information that is systematically analysed with regard to revenue, costs, risks and opportunities provides a solid basis for decision-making due to its breadth, depth and quality.

 

  • Expert opinion: is there potential for improvement?

Well-founded opinions on diverse questions, based on our expertise and experience.

 

  • Coaching and counselling: how can improvement be realised? 

Explore pertinent sustainability issues through critical analysis with the right people, for example through stakeholder engagement.

the principle of reactivity.
