Robustness in DIA’s reporting

With the annual sustainability report, DIA reinforces its commitment to improving relations with external stakeholders and to transparency in its CSR and sustainability reporting. DIA wants to report its entire environmental, social and economic performance in 2012 to society.

The Sustainability Report for 2012, the company’s second since it was listed in July 2011, was prepared taking into consideration prevailing legislation, as well as the main guidelines and recommendations of leading international organisations, particularly the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

This purpose of this report is to give an accurate account of DIA’s corporate responsibility and sustainability principles and actions. The information contained herein is available on the www.diacorporate.com website under the Sustainability and CSR section.

The chapters cover the key issues identified based on DIA’s strategy and the expectations and demands of stakeholders in accordance with the following principles for preparing sustainability reports:

  • Materiality, focus on information that is relevant and material to stakeholders
  • Stakeholder inclusiveness, through approaches such as surveys and questionnaires
  • Sustainability context, reporting on relative and absolute performance
  • Completeness, in the scope of report indicators, the range of entities represented in the report (boundary) and the presentation of available quantitative information
  • Balance, reflecting both positive aspects and aspects that can be improved
  • Comparability, presenting information in a manner that allows for comparison over time and relative to other organisations
  • Accuracy
  • Timeliness
  • Clarity
  • Reliability

The 2012 Sustainability Report reflects DIA’s economic, social and environmental performance, including the central company and each local company.

In addition, an internal assessment was conducted of topics that are material to DIA, and the organization’s key stakeholders (i.e. those with which it was in constant dialogue during the year) were identified.

Moreover, DIA has both internal and external audit systems to monitor incidents, investigate potential fraud, prepare reports at the request of management and verify the reliability of the information provided.
