Since the release of our first corporate responsibility report, our company has been committed to using established frameworks to report our performance on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Our 2017/2018 Corporate Responsibility report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and considers the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) as additional frameworks to guide our reporting.
Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB)
We continue to evaluate and aim to improve our approach to reporting, including looking at existing, globally recognized reporting frameworks. Established in 2011, SASB is an independent, standards-setting organization dedicated to improving the effectiveness and comparability of corporate disclosure on (ESG) factors. Beginning with this report, we now include a table that cross-references the SASB metrics with where that information can be found within our report.
While our Corporate Responsibility Report serves as the primary channel for publicly disclosing our ESG performance, we also voluntarily participate in various questionnaires, including CDP.
