REPORTING APPROACH

GRI Index

As required by the GRI Standards, we provide an index that specifies each of the GRI Standards used and lists all disclosures included in the report.

As part of ERM's efforts to advance sustainability reporting, we support the activities of GRI as a GOLD Community member and a Standards Pioneer.

We also provide a separate index corresponding to our progress in implementing the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact.
