Jennifer Iansen-Rogers, one of Europe’s leading experts in CRS reporting and assurance, has joined ERM Certification and Verification Services (ERM CVS) as a Partner to head up the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report Assurance business – a growth area for ERM CVS as clients seeks to engage stakeholders with robust, credible CSR information.
Jennifer, who has worked in KPMG’s global Climate Change and Sustainability Network for more than 20 years, has unparalleled experience in CSR reporting, information systems and assurance, and has worked with a wide range of clients, including A.P. Möller-Maersk, Shell, AkzoNobel, Philips and Carlsberg.
During this time she has been closely involved in national and international developments in CSR reporting and assurance, including a recent secondment to GRI to advise on the development of the G4 guidelines. She was a member of the Board of AccountAbility and of the Royal NIVRA (Accounting Association) working group in the Netherlands that produced a recognised standard for CSR report assurance. Since 2010, Jennifer has trained more than 300 professionals from 28 countries in CSR assurance alongside her assurance engagements for her multinational clients.
“The market for CSR report assurance is growing because decision makers – internal and external stakeholders – want access to reliable information. In a global economy this is vital in order to assess future risks and potential,” she commented.
ERM CVS managing director Leigh Lloyd welcomed the appointment. “ERM CVS continues to win business in this area because of our ability to work with clients, wherever they are operating, to drive genuine improvements, both in the way they report and in the quality and reliability of what they report. We are very pleased that Jennifer is joining us and her experience will be particularly important as we develop the business.”
ERM CVS delivers performance-focused, independent third-party certification and verification to clients in sectors such as oil and gas, mining, healthcare and mainstream manufacturing.
