There are various standards for CR reporting for companies. The number of international requirements and frameworks is growing. Our CR report has been based for many years in particular on reporting in accordance with GRI. Since 2017, we have also been using the SDGs to make our performance transparent. However, we want to adequately meet the growing interest of our stakeholders in having comparable sustainability information. For this reason, we addressed the sustainability standards of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) in the reporting year, and the industry-specific analysis for the information and communications technology sector.
In this CR report you will therefore find an assignment of our industry-specific SASB criteria to our relevant content – specifically in the GRI content index and other selected sections of the report. Where applicable, we report the SASB criteria in our KPIs.
In the future, we will also monitor the dynamic requirements for sustainability reporting, and take appropriate steps to communicate our extensive commitment to sustainability as transparently as possible in line with external requirements.
