REPORTING FRAMEWORK AND DATA COLLECTION

This annual report is intended for all our stakeholders and in particular for our shareholders and staff and reports on aspects highly material to Accell Group. The financial data in this report is generated by a standardized and automated reporting system. The internal risk management system safeguards the reliability of these financial data.

The data related to Corporate Social Responsibility is collected once a year. The collected data and reporting are not verified by the external auditor. In 2021, the sustainability-related data collection covered almost all of our operations and is related to number of employees and turnover. The quantitative and qualitative information related to Corporate Social Responsibility is based on qualitative interviews and quantitative data requests. To this end, we address the responsible staff members at our companies and staff departments. The persons responsible at our companies provide the requested quantitative data and direct the sustainability aspects and priority actions.

 

The team responsible for Corporate Social Responsibility at Group level uses a plausibility check to verify the data obtained. Most of the employee data are derived from various HR information systems, some data comes from other means of administration and estimations based on interviews. Having different systems and not all data registered within these systems will influence the reliability of the presented figures.

 

DEVIATIONS FROM PREVIOUS CSR REPORTING

During the data collection process, some 2019 and 2020 figures have been adjusted based on new or improved calculations. Where necessary, we adjusted the figures for previous years in the tables for correctness and comparison purposes. This resulted in some minor deviations in the data that were presented in the 2019 and 2020 annual report.
