The reporting of Itella Group is prepared in accordance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Unless otherwise mentioned, the reporting covers all operations of Itella’s parent company and subsidiaries. The reporting does not include the operations of subcontractors or affiliated companies. However, with regard to Finland, the environmental report includes the environmental impact of the subcontractors employed by our transport operations.
The indicators’ coverage is reported in connection with the indicators in question.
The data and indicators concerning financial responsibility are obtained from the consolidated financial statements, prepared in accordance with the IFRS and the international IFRS approved by the European Union. The consolidated financial statements are prepared in compliance with the IAS and the IFRS valid on December 31, 2011 and the related SIC standards and IFRIC interpretations. The notes to the consolidated financial statements are also drawn up in compliance with the Finnish accounting and corporate legislation.
The index section of people responsibility covers data from all countries of operation. However, parts of the data have so far included only figures from Finland. If this is the case, it is mentioned in connection with the index in question. Our intention is to expand the scope of HR reporting during 2012 so that it will cover not only the indexes of other countries, but new indexes.
The indexes concerning environmental responsibility cover Itella’s operations with the greatest environmental impact, in all countries of operation.
Social responsibility reports focus on Finland, since this aspect emphasizes the postal services that Itella provides to all consumers and businesses.
