Our materiality analysis was reviewed by a GRI-trained professional internal to Vermilion, who also holds the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board FSA and a CSR-P designation (Corporate Social Responsibility-Practitioner, certified by The Center for Sustainability and Excellence). The analysis has also been reviewed and validated by Vermilion’s senior management team.
We use engagement with sustainability and socially responsible investment analysts on an ongoing basis to support our alignment with GRI Guidelines and best practices, and our focus on continuous improvement. This includes such critical issues as governance, climate change, science-based target setting, and environmental metrics reporting.
