Credibility comprises the objective and subjective components of the believability of a source or message. With customers, investors, pre-employee and other key stakeholders subjected to thousands of brand messages a day, business must make an impression quickly

Scenarios requiring interparty trust are quite common in the business world as well, where customers, investors or other stakeholders expect not only an accurate info, but also a trustworthy mechanism for verifying that the info have not been altered after the fact in a convenient way.

 

Third-party Vertification

Effectively communicating your business credentials and providing legitimate proof to back up your sustainability claims by independent third parties is trustworthy verification for customers, investors, analysts, ESG/Sustainability report writers, auditors, and other stakeholders.
