Regulating Third Party Assurance Engagements on Sustainability Reports : Insights from the Swedish Case

Sonnerfeldt, Amanda LU (2014) In European Company Law 11(2). p.137-140
Abstract
It is a well-institutionalised notion that information subjected to assurance (audit) by third parties contributes to better quality information for decision making. In the field of sustainability reporting, who are providing assurance and how is quality regulated? What are the challenges of regulating sustainability assurance through standards? What role can hard law play to strengthen reporting and assurance as tools to support sustainable companies?
