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.

Happy reading!
