On this call, B Lab staff will review questions that may have been unclear or difficult to answer and help companies refine answers so that they better fit the intent of the questions.
Validation through supporting documentation ensures a greater degree of accuracy. Companies and funds submit documents for material questions within the B Impact Assessment.
An on-site review is the highest form of validation B Lab provides. This involves documentation review, employee interviews, and a plant/facility walk through.
For GIIRS Ratings, documentation review and on-site review are conducted by a third party service provider. Deloitte & Touche has been retained as the preferred provider of document and onsite review services to assist GIIRS in its validation and rating process.
