Energy company taps our reporting expertise
BG Group has benefited from Two Tomorrows’ insight into sustainability reporting best practice and our assurance expertise.
Since 2011, we have advised the international leader in natural gas exploration, production, storage and supply on how it can develop its leadership position in sustainability reporting. Our recommendations have been based on benchmarking carried out for BG Group using our Tomorrow’s Value Rating methodology to compare the company’s recent sustainability reporting with that of other major players in the energy sector. We have also consulted BG Group stakeholders to assess how well its reporting covers the company’s material issues.
In addition, we carried out independent assurance of BG Group’s 2011 and 2012 sustainability reports. We examined sustainability performance data and related claims in the reports. We also checked to see that the reports met the criteria for the Global Reporting Initiative A+ application level.
One of the challenges for BG Group in managing and reporting its sustainability performance is collating data from across its global operations. In recent years, its reporting has focused on the types of major issues faced by many international energy companies including climate change, employee and contractor safety, major hazard risk and asset integrity, water management, local community concerns, and bribery and ethical conduct.
