A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

The NSCC sustainability team met with the WSP Canada consulting team to review STARS 2.2 and the review process. As NSCC completed credit reports the team from WSP reviewed them and used the STARS review template to make comments. An initial review was completed by WSP and the template was sent to NSCC. NSCC reviewed all the comments for each credit and addressed them and they were returned to WSP for a second review. The second review was returned to NSCC for final comments.
