Covestro aims to help protect the environment, conserve limited resources, advance society, and create value, all by firmly integrating sustainability into our Group strategy and management.
Our sustainability reporting is based on recognized standards. We report on material topics and nonfinancial performance indicators pursuant to Section 315 (3) of the German Commercial Code (HGB) in our Group Management Report and supplement this information with additional content, which meets the requirements of the “with reference to” reporting option of the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards (SRS); this option has been available since the year 2022. We voluntarily report the management approaches for material topics in accordance with GRI 3-3 (2021). We plan to check whether the use of voluntary GRI reporting under the “in accordance with GRI” option is appropriate against the backdrop of regulatory developments.
