Clients may work with us to specifically tailor an audit program to perform a dedicated sustainability audit, which may range from site visits with other specialists, to audit and review of Annual Sustainability Reporting.
Additionally, every Lancaster Consulting joint venture audit will be conducted with sustainable development in mind. This means during the ordinary course of the audit all our team are trained to look for opportunities. Some examples: 1) drawing attention to use of a vendor known for a weaker approach to environmental protection, 2) observations about the Community Engagement Program, 3) opportunities for use of unspent training budgets.
Our work will be calibrated, and performed to the extent it adds value to the main objectives of the joint venture audit. It is not a mandatory part of our audit scope, but our position is that a direct link exists between the value of the partner investment, and the sustainability credentials of the joint venture.
