Every three years, INTOSAI WGEA publishes a survey on the state of environmental auditing globally. The report was published now for the 10th time on 10 December.
The report “Environmental and climate audits on the rise” gives an overview of the audits SAIs have conducted and plan to undertake, the resources SAIs dedicate to the work, the topics they choose, the way they conduct their audits and communicate about them, and how SAIs consider the global frameworks, notably the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. The report also explains the main barriers and provides an analysis of how the pandemic has affected SAIs’ work on environmental auditing.
