Commitment to Open Dialogue
Our 2017 Integrated Report confirms our commitment to open dialogue and ethics, and demonstrates how we manage the issues that are part of our vision for the future. It speaks of the past – of our achievements and challenges – but it also speaks of commitments for the coming years. Its content is aligned with our Sustainability Commitments and the topics identified as most relevant to our business and value chain.
We used the guidelines of the
International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) as our reference and prepared the report according to the standards of the
Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) – “core option”. We also observed the principles of the
Global Compact, the
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the
Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) guidelines, an initiative under the auspices of the
World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). The report was validated by the external auditing company
Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS) and submitted to the GRI for alignment with the
Materiality Disclosure Service.
This year we had an additional challenge – since our previous report (2016) was rated the best among all WBCSD members, with a score of 81.9%, we saw a greater responsibility to be clear, objective, specific and relevant in selecting information that helps our stakeholders learn more about what we’ve done and where we’re headed.
We want to thank you for your interest in reading this report. After all, we want to “go far”, but more importantly, we want to “go together” with everyone who wants to build a better industry and a more prosperous society.
