Sustainability Performance and Guiding Principles
We publish our Sustainability Report annually, integrated in our Annual Report, in accordance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI - Standard) and the principles of the AA1000APS standard.
Since 2023, we have also published the TCFD (Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures) Report, specifically targeted at financial information related to environmental impacts and climate change.
Our Sustainability Reports are subject to verification, according to the principles defined by ISAE 3000 (International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3000), by an external and independent entity, Ernst & Young Audit & Associados - SROC, S.A.
Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures Reports
Climate and environmental risks and opportunities have gained a central role in the European and Global strategy. In this context, we share the TCFD Report, which follows the recommendations of the Working Group on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures, established in 2015 by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), to address concerns around insufficient disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities.
