Our materiality analysis was reviewed by a GRI-trained professional internal to Vermilion, who also holds 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 Executive.
It is our intent to engage our sustainability consultants to assist us with ensuring alignment with GRI Guidelines and best practices every couple of reporting cycles to support Vermilion’s focus on continuous improvement.
Our intention is to conduct formal external stakeholder validation of the issues contained within Vermilion’s sustainability report every two to three reporting cycles. While this means that we did not formally engage external stakeholders to provide feedback on this report, we have engaged with, and incorporated feedback from, a range of external stakeholders on such issues as governance, climate change, science-based target setting, and environmental metrics reporting.
Portions of the data contained in this report were also independently audited or verified by the following organizations: LBG Canada, GLJ Petroleum Consultants and Deloitte (noted in our GRI Content Index document). In addition, the environmental metrics included from our CDP submission are verified under ISO14064-3. G4-33
