Every year, innogy reports transparently on sustainability in its various facets on an annual basis. The Sustainability Report addresses key stakeholders such as analysts and investors, customers, suppliers, non-governmental organizations, government and government agencies, employees, and anyone else interested in our activities. In our reports, we explain which economic, social and environmental challenges have been linked to our core business, what potential conflicts of interest have arisen and what measures we have developed in the area of Corporate Responsibility (CR). Since 2017, we have used the globally recognized GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards of the Global Reporting Initiative for reporting in the area of sustainability.
For the 2017 reporting year, our sustainability report includes for the first time the combined separate non-financial report (NfB) of innogy SE and its subsidiaries in accordance with HGB (German Commercial Code) § 315c i.V.m. § 289c. As a framework for the non-financial report, we used GRI standards in particular for materiality analysis and concepts. With the publication of the NfB as part of the Sustainability Report, innogy implements the statutory requirements from the CSR Directive Implementation Act for the implementation of Directive 2014/95 / EU (CSR Directive on Disclosure of Non-financial and Diversity Information), which introduces for the first time in Germany a regulation of reporting on certain sustainability topics. The law requires that large capital market-oriented companies as well as large credit institutions and insurance companies, each with more than 500 employees, must apply with the law and make a so-called non-financial statement
