Ernst & Young's Steve Starbuck says assurance is on the rise

Companies striving to prove their green credibility and compliance often rely on assurance auditing. And according to Steve Starbuck, the Americas leader of climate change and sustainability services for Ernst & Young, this need is only growing. To do assurance right, he says, it's important to embrace a holistic approach. "It's to the benefit of the client if we combine the expertise of financial assurance auditing with the auditing of non-financial and sustainability auditors," he said during a Studio C chat at GreenBiz Forum 2014. "So we team very closely to give the client the best possible service."
