Holmen’s Annual report 2012 including sustainability report provides detailed information about the Group’s financial performance and the conditions that defined its markets during the year. It also contains the corporate governance report and detailed information on the Board, senior management, auditors and Annual General Meeting. In addition, the annual report includes a description of sustainability work for 2011 along with key indicators for employees, production and the environment.
The reporting in the annual report on financial management, environmental responsibility, employees and other stakeholders is supplemented on Holmen’s website by a detailed account of the Group’s work on sustainability. This includes a complete GRI register with links to descriptions of environmental work in the various business areas, employee issues and statistical tables. Together with the Annual report 2012 including sustainability report, this makes up Holmen’s sustainability reporting.
Holmen has published sustainability reports annually since 2004. The previous edition was published in March 2012.
Stakeholders and target groups
Employees, customers, shareholders, business partners, opinion formers, authorities, analysts, schools and the general public.
About the facts in the report
The facts presented in the annual report and here on the website are largely the same as those Holmen is required to report to the authorities by law.
Adaptation to GRI and the UN Global Compact
The object of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is to encourage companies and organisations to voluntarily describe their activities from an economic, environmental and social perspective.
Holmen’s method of reporting has been adapted to the GRI requirements and the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact. The Group’s GRI reporting follows version 3.1 and satisfies GRI reporting level A+, as also confirmed by auditors at KPMG. A complete GRI register and the auditors’ assurance report can be found here on the website.
The information about Holmen’s sustainability work in the Annual report 2012 including sustainability report and on this website is compiled and produced within the Group. Holmen regards internal production as a way of developing sustainability efforts in the areas concerned. A special working group containing representatives of Holmen’s Group staffs is responsible for coordinating sustainability issues. This group, which is appointed by the Group’s CEO, is responsible for the sustainability information in both printed and digital form.
