          Assurance at an overall level will be conducted by financial auditors (PWC, Pitcher Partners).  
Assurance of portfolio operational data is generally completed by third party groups such as the Environmental Protection Agency, NSW, Australia (providing assurance that environmental, pollution and waste standards have been met), where possible we also seek assurance from global standards, such as the SA8000 and ISO18001 in relation to operating partners or key equipment suppliers. Quinbrook recently undertook a direct verification process on its ESG practices and past PRI reporting with one of its largest institutional investors whose dedicated ESG personnel reviewed all Quinbrook ESG policies, reporting inputs and engaged in several Q&A sessions designed to ensure Quinbrook was putting its policies into practice.

Assurance standard to be used


          ISO8001 may be sought where available or relevant in relation to some third party equipment suppliers.
