Responsibility

CSR Report 2016/17

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an important element of our corporate strategy. In our CSR reports, we describe the basic principles, developments, and results of our CSR initiatives in a transparent and comprehensible way. The PHOENIX group has been publishing this information annually since 2012/13.

The latest report covers fiscal year 2016/17. Our report is based on the guidelines set forth in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI G4) and the “Core” option.

The Corporate Sustainability Report 2016/17 includes the key performance indicators (KPIs) from all of the subsidiaries and their domestic affiliates for the third time running. All of the key figures can therefore be shown in a three-year comparison.

GRI guidelines

The guidelines presented by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) provide a framework used throughout the world for the preparation of sustainability reports. The goal is to make these reports as widely known as all of the other annually-published company reports.

The guidelines spell out standards on which to base CSR reporting; the main categories for the report being economic, environmental and social responsibility.

The Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2016/17 was reviewed by a Materiality Disclosures Service via the Global Reporting Initiative. Consequently, it was confirmed that the standard disclosures G4-17 to G4-27 specified by the Initiative are listed correctly in the table of contents (GRI G4 Content Index) and in the text of the report.
