This Index follows G3.1 guidelines and includes sector specific media disclosures. The Global Reporting Initiative’s G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines provide a comprehensive set of indicators covering the economic, environmental and ethical impacts of a company’s performance. These reporting principles have informed our reporting since 2008.
For fiscal year 2013, we have self-assessed ourselves as a B reporter according to GRI-defined application levels.
Background on the GRI
The GRI Reporting Framework is intended to serve as a generally accepted framework for reporting on an organization’s economic, environmental, and social performance. It is designed for use by organizations of any size, sector, or location. It takes into account the practical considerations faced by a diverse range of organizations – from small enterprises to those with extensive and geographically dispersed operations. The GRI Reporting Framework contains general and sector-specific content that has been agreed upon by a wide range of stakeholders around the world to be generally applicable for reporting an organization’s sustainability performance.1
