RESEARCH & ARTICLES
In a recent Financial Mail magazine article, our Managing Partner and Lead Certified Sustainability Assurance Practitioner, Michael Rea highlighted a confrontation with labour broker Adcorp over the calculation of the “wage gap” between executives and staff.
Our primary research consists of an annual review of how well JSE listed companies meet reasonable expectations for ESG/Sustainability data transparency. By reviewing ALL annual reports and supplemental documentation, IRAS creates an annual score representing how much quantitative (numerical) comparable performance data is made available to stakeholders.
Additional research reports are produced to cover additional topics such as SDG Reporting and ESG/Sustainability Assurance.
