The interactive subsidiary benchmarking tool allows you to compare the Group's indicators over the course of several years or between selected subsidiaries. The data can be viewed in the form of tables, line diagrams or bar charts. To compare individual Group subsidiaries, switch from "Indicators per company" to "Compare subsidiaries" in the upper left-hand corner of the window. The illustrations also include important background information on the development of specific values for the years 2009 to 2012. These are marked with the icon in the tables.

In addition, the relevance for various reporting standards is specified under each indicator.
