Manager Sustainability Assurance

Sustainability has been high on the agendas of many companies for years. From Climate Change, Biodiversity, Circularity, equal opportunities for people and other human rights issues up to Governance. Companies are expected to measure and report on their sustainability performance, driven by the implementation of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
