Please note that currently this policy will apply only to company climate change responses (including supply chain). In addition, from 10 December 2017, we will only be able to accept amendments to current (2017) responses for all themes – climate change, water and forests. Requests regarding any responses prior to 2017 must be received by that date in order to be processed.
Amendments made with no charge
Based on a list of selected questions (see below), we will make certain amendments free of charge.
Chargeable amendment requests
Other amendments may be made, at our discretion, for a fee.
Amendments that reflect changes in the company’s structure, policy or processes that came into effect after the reporting period will not be made at any time. All these should be reflected or restated in the following year’s response.
With regards to verification/assurance, status selected in questions CC8.6, CC8.7 or CC14.2 should not be amended retrospectively. Verification statements attached to questions CC8.6a, CC8.6b, CC8.7a or CC14.2a may only be amended where a company has mistakenly attached the wrong document.
A turnaround of 5-10 business days from receipt of payment. Following your request, you will be notified by email if a fee is applicable, along with payment details. The amendment will not be made until payment is received.
