CSR Report

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 way that is transparent, comprehensive and understandable. The PHOENIX group has been publishing these on an annual basis since 2012/13.

Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2015/16

The latest report covers fiscal year 2015/16. Our report is based on the guidelines set forth in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI G4) and the “Core” option.

It includes the key performance indicators (KPIs) from all of the subsidiaries and their domestic affiliates for the second time running. All indices can be compared with the respective values from the previous year.


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 2015/16 was reviewed for the first time 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.
