Part of the AICPA Series

Attestation Engagements on Sustainability Information (Including Greenhouse Gas Emissions Information) Synopsis

New Authoritative Guide for SSAE No. 18 and Sustainability Organizations are increasingly seeking to add credibility to sustainability information: According to the CFA Institute, 73 percent of portfolio managers and research analysts surveyed take sustainability matters into account when making investment decisions and 69 percent believe it is important that such information be subject to independent assurance.

The content of that SOP has been updated for the clarified attestations standards and included in the guide.
