Communication on Progress (COP)
The Corporate Responsibility Report 2012, which serves our Communication on Progress (COP) on our commitment to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC), meets "Advanced Level" reporting criteria. This means that we have gone beyond the minimum requirements and report on sustainability, corporate governance and relevant management processes.
