UN Global Compact and GRI Index

The Corporate Responsibility Report 2013, which serves our Communication on Progress (COP) on our commitment to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC), meets “Advanced Level” reporting criteria. This means that we have gone beyond the minimum requirements and report on sustainability, corporate governance and relevant management processes.

The overview of our achievements in accordance with GRI criteria (Version 3.1) has been organized to reflect the ten principles of the UNGC. The linkages to the UNGC’s ten principles are based on the publication “Making the Connection”.

Upon careful assessment against the GRI criteria (Version 3.1), we declare our report as fulfilling the requirements of the GRI application level “B+”, as we are not yet able to provide statements on all key indicators. Credibility and transparency are of the utmost importance in our reporting. For this reason, instead of masking shortcomings, we address them.
