The Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) vision is that reporting on economic, environmental and social performance by all organizations becomes as routine and comparable as financial reporting. GRI accomplishes this vision by developing, continually improving and building capacity around the use of its Sustainability Reporting Framework. The GRI indicators and supplements are the most widely used framework for reporting. The UN Global Compact and the ICMM use the reporting framework.
In this section of the report, we show what GRI G3 indicators have been reported against in the 2012 Sustainability Report. The section is organized to reflect the structure in which the indicators are laid out in the G3.
The Content Index also shows G3 indicators that correspond to the principles of other voluntary initiatives that we participate in and those that require annual reporting. These initiatives include: The United Nations Global Compact, the International Council on Mining & Metals and the Global Sullivan Principles.
Our 2012 Sustainability Report has been written in accordance with the 2006 Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) 2006 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and the GRI Mining and Metals Sector Supplement. The report has been reviewed by Bureau Veritas North America, Inc. to determine the Report Application Level per the chart below.
