Survey

Every three years, the WGEA conducts a survey on environmental auditing. Surveys are sent to all heads of supreme audit institutions. The last survey was conducted in 2015. The WGEA has conducted until now seven surveys.

The Ninth Survey on Environmental Auditing is now currently in progress. The Questionnaire for this survey is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Arabic. We encourage SAIs to spare some time and contribute by submitting your answer by 31 July 2018.

Surveys are instrumental in the development of each WGEA work plan and serve the needs of INTOSAI members. The practitioners of environmental auditing can use the results of the survey to compare their work to that of other countries. For SAIs that are new to environmental auditing or that do not conduct environmental audits as a common practice, survey results demonstrate that auditing environmental issues is important and that they can learn from colleagues who have made a difference in their countries. Survey results also show the international environmental community, which is concerned about environmental and sustainable issues, that SAIs play an important role.

This survey asks questions on auditing mandates, environmental audits, environmental auditing capacity, internet capacity, co-operation among SAIs, and about products developed by the working group.

Annually an additional shorter questionnaire is sent out to update the Environmental Audits Worldwide section.

If you have any queries regarding the Survey, please contact the WGEA Secretariat by email to wgea@bpk.go.id

Contribution of INTOSAI WGEA to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development

In the work plan of INTOSAI WGEA for 2011-2013, a commitment was made to develop a document focusing on the topics in the agenda of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). Project Leaders of SAIs of Brazil and Canada cooperated with the project sub-committee and the Secretariat of INTOSAI WGEA in developing a paper reflecting the key messages of the community of public sector auditors on the central topic of sustainable development based on their years of work, presented to the Heads of the Rio+20:
