CICS Assures 3663's Sustainability Report
3 February 2012 - Stoke-on-Trent, UK - CICS (Complete Integrated Certification Services Ltd), a global sustainability assurance provider and the leading greenhouse gas verification body in the UK and Ireland, has recently carried out independent assurance of the Sustainability Report produced by the BFS Group Limited (trading as 3663 and Bidvest Logistics).
Committed to protecting and conserving natural resources, 3663, a leading foodservice provider in the UK, has been driving the sustainability agenda within the foodservice industry for the past sixteen years; the group has cut carbon emissions by 20% from their baseline of 2007 and has set itself a target of zero waste to landfill by 2015.
In order to enhance the credibility of their information, Jason Monckton, Sustainability Manager at 3663, engaged CICS to provide an independent evaluation of their Sustainability Report. This robust process involved carrying out site visits, data verification and interviews with key personnel. Backed by his skilled team of verifiers, CICS' Operations Manager, Tim Watts, evaluated the report against the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3.1 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, concluding that the information and data contained within the report was reliable and provided a fair and balanced representation of their sustainability activities.
Jason Monckton explained why he decided to have the report independently verified.
"We chose to seek external assurance for our sustainability report as we believe it provides all of our stakeholders with confidence in the factuality of its content. Additionally it helps prepare us for anticipated tightening of environmental reporting requirements in the future."
