Our first Sustainability Report follows the internationally recognised standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and informs about the current status, and our goals and measures. We wish you a good read, welcome your feedback and look forward to cooperating with you to create a future worth living.
This is the first Sustainability Report of the ifm group of companies. It has been prepared in accordance with the Sustainability Reporting Standards (2016) of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) in the “Core” option. The Content has not been externally verified, but some information, for example, in the fields of ‘environment’ and ‘occupational safety’, is subject to external audits. Moreover, elements of the environmental statement that were prepared in accordance with the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) of the European Union were used for environment-related statements on products or production. An independent environmental audit was carried out for the environmental statement. Unless otherwise indicated, the statements in this report apply to the entire ifm group of companies and refer to the financial year 2019 (1 January to 31 December 2019). The consolidated financial statement for 2019 of the ifm group of companies, which commercial law prescribes for publication, is expected to be published in the electronic Bundesanzeiger during the last quarter of 2020. The financial figures for 2019 are preliminary figures. The editorial deadline was 26 June 2020.
The next Sustainability Report is scheduled for summer 2021.
