This assurance engagement is aimed at obtaining limited assurance. The performed procedures by obtaining a limited level of assurance
are aimed at determining the plausibility of information and are less extensive than those aimed at obtaining reasonable assurance in an
The performed procedures in this context consisted mainly of gathering information from officers of the Company and applying analytical
procedures set out in relation to the sustainability data.
The assurance obtained in assurance engagements aimed at obtaining limited assurance is therefore significantly lower than the assurance
obtained in assurance engagements aimed at obtaining reasonable assurance.
We have exercised professional judgement and have maintained professional scepticism throughout the assurance engagement, in accordance
with the Dutch Standard 3000.
Our assurance engagement included amongst others:
- gaining knowledge and obtaining an understanding of the sustainability data and other circumstances regarding the engagement including
gaining knowledge regarding internal controls;
- an analytical review of the data and trends submitted;
- assessing the suitability of the Reporting Criteria.
