Assuring results to support credible reporting

Client Name
  • ESG advisory


As a bank with growing international importance, BCI recognised the need to provide stakeholders with evidence of their sustainability progress. Having already set ambitious KPI’s and underway with working towards them, BCI needed a partner to support them by backing up their results with an extra level of credibility.


To assess and verify the accuracy and completeness of BCI’s data collection, management and reporting, Corporate Citizenship (an SLR company) worked with the organisation to agree and assure a range of material indicators, including scope 3 value chain emissions, according to ISAE 3000, GRI and the GHG Protocol.


Corporate Citizenship’s work has enabled BCI to credibly demonstrate progress in their sustainability plan and 2030 net zero target to their stakeholders, as well as, for the first time, publish their social and environmental KPIs in their integrated Annual Report.

“We have worked with Corporate Citizenship on several projects and value their understanding of our business and sustainability challenges. The practical feedback provided during and after assurance projects has helped us to make improvements in our processes and reporting.”
