Vladimir Skobarev, a Partner of FBK Grant Thornton, has spoken at the seventh annual conference on best practices and new standards for annual reports, which was organised by RAEX Analytics to award the best annual reports.
He dedicated his speech to sustainability assurance, its standards, criteria and challenges. The insights he shared were based on a UNCTAD–ISAR–WBCSD webinar. According to Vladimir Skobarev, “Sustainability reporting assurance is an important and promising audit filed both in Russia and abroad. Today, only few audit firms can offer sustainability assurance services of high quality.”
The competition of annual reports has been held by RAEX for over 20 years. Its award ceremony has become an event where it is possible to learn about key annual report content and design trends.
