Performance and reporting

About our reporting

Every year, since 2001, we have publicly reported our sustainability performance. These reports set out our policies and principles and summarise how we are managing our environmental impacts, how we are working with suppliers and local communities, and how our employees or Partners contribute to and share in the rewards of our commercial success.

For the first time, in 2015 we combined our Annual Report and Sustainability Review information into one document, reflecting the way in which we do business. Additional sustainability performance statistics can be found on these pages and below.

Assurance
We've commissioned DNV GL Business Assurance Services UK Limited (“DNV GL”) to undertake independent assurance of the our sustainability performance as published in the Environment and Community Performance sections in our Annual Report and Accounts 2015 on pages 57-59, 66-67, and 74-75 and Our Environment and Our Community pages for the reporting period 26 January 2014 - 31 January 2015.  

DNV GL's assurance was performed using the methodology VeriSustainTM, which includes reference to the International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3000 (Revised), 'Assurance Engagements Other Than Audits and Reviews of Historical Financial Information' and the AA1000 Assurance standard (2008). Our sustainability content was evaluated for adherence to the VeriSustainTM Principles (the “Principles”) of stakeholder inclusiveness, materiality, responsiveness, completeness, neutrality and reliability.
