Each year, we review whether the sustainability programmes still adequately address our material issues. When they do not, we establish new programmes or update existing programmes. Where possible and relevant, our sustainability programmes consist of policies and procedures, performance indicators and targets and due diligence actions.
Our Sustainability Committee oversees that we live up to our Sustainability Commitment and monitors the progress of our programmes through continuous reporting. The first full year of meetings for the Committee was in 2016, following its establishment in 2015.
In a continuous effort to strengthen our sustainability reporting, our independent Internal Audit function has, in 2016, audited selected programmes and assessed our sustainability risk identification process. The conclusion was that our processes and controls are sufficient to ensure that the examined sets of programmes are measured and recognised in accordance with the applied accounting practice.
