How can we achieve high-quality assurance for non-financial information (NFI)?

The European Commission is revising the Non Financial Reporting Directive to improve disclosures on NFI at the EU level. Independent, external assurance is a benchmark for trustworthy data. In this event, we will propose three conditions to develop and ensure high-quality NFI assurance, in hopes of achieving more reliability, better confidence in markets and progress on the global sustainable finance objectives.
