About the CR report

This report is the second Corporate Responsibility Report to be published by Haniel and has been drawn up 'in accordance' with the 'core' GRI G4. The period under review relates to the 2015 calendar year, with the cut-off date for collecting the data being 31 December 2015. An external audit has not been conducted. The printed version of the first Haniel CR report, Valued Bonds, was published on 28 April 2014. Reporting in accordance with the GRI guidelines is carried out every two years. In addition, Haniel reports transparently on the progress it is making in its CR activities every year in its annual report.

The holding company has recommended to the divisions that they develop CR strategies tailored to their own business model and report transparently on their progress in sustainability reports in accordance with the GRI guidelines. In this CR report, Haniel also reports for the first time on the CR commitment of the Bekaert Textiles division, which was acquired in 2015. A CR target agreement and, accompanying that, the identification of the key aspects in the three CR action areas is planned for Bekaert Textiles in 2016 for the first time.
