The Future of Assurance: models for sustainability standards

Assurance is evolving due to increased collaboration among sustainability organisations and the growing availability of information and new technologies which enable alternatives to audits. Traditional assurance has focused on effective management and oversight of the entities and processes that make up credible certification and verification. But what if collaboration and sustainability data could fuel more effective and efficient assurance models? What does this mean for your assurance programme? This workshop will explore how traditional assurance approaches are evolving as a result of current trends and new tools. We will review the requirements of the Assurance Code and how they can support your assurance programme. 

Next workshop: Previously scheduled Zürich workshop has been cancelled. Future workshop to be confirmed.


ISEAL Monitoring and Evaluation Training Workshop

This workshop will guide you in building the foundations of a robust M&E system. Through informative presentations and practical exercises, we will explore the value of M&E, the key elements of an M&E system and how M&E relates to an organisation’s wider strategy. Participants will learn the basics of the Theory of Change, how to structure data collection activities and develop appropriate M&E indicators, how performance M&E can add value, and tips on becoming a learning organisation.
