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.
