CRC Internal Audit Leading to Increased Staff Engagement and Improved Business Processes

A case study from Carbon Credentials written by Stephanie Chesters, Environmental Manager at Birkbeck, University of London.

"As an organisation, we were struggling to achieve the CRC internal audit requirements. As Birkbeck’s main source of knowledge on the CRC, I was responsible for the submission and compilation of the evidence pack, rendering me unable to act as an auditor for this process as I was too close to the problem.

In light of this, and since we are a small organisation with restricted resources, we decided to use a third party to cast a ‘fresh eye’ over the work compiled. We hoped that a third party would identify any potential errors in the data and gaps in our evidence pack, and give us a good level of assurance in the event of an audit from the Environment Agency."
