ALSO Publishes Separate Sustainability Report
New paths in reporting: Over the past ten years, ALSO has systematically worked on developing and expanding its commitment to sustainability and communicated this in its Annual Report.
Due to the continuously growing scope of reporting, the company has now decided to publish an independent Sustainability Report on 1. February 2021.
For a long time already, ALSO has reported far more comprehensively than required by law. Following the growing number of requests from stakeholders in the last year for target-group-specific reporting, which will further increase the visibility of the company's economic performance and its commitment in the area of ESG, the Annual and Sustainability Reports will be published separately in the future. Both will be digital only.
Sustainability reporting is based on the framework provided by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to ensure comparability of content. After the publication of the ALSO Holding AG Annual Report, the content will be updated, especially with regard to the economic, but also the ecological commitment of the company.
"Topics such as compliance, diversity or the economical use of resources are not a duty for us, but a matter of course. Sustainability is part of our life and our self-conception. That is why we have developed our own path, reflectively and critically, in dealing with the content as well as in reporting," says Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN).
