On November 12, 2019, the Journal of Accountancy published an article on how the demand for sustainability assurance is likely to grow in the coming years, according to a new survey conducted by The Conference Board.

Thirty-seven of the 57 large U.S. and European companies participating in the survey said they obtain assurance on at least some of their publicly reported sustainability information. Seventy percent of the companies that obtain this assurance said they expect that the need for sustainability assurance will increase over the next five years.
