Reporting governance

The Management Board (MB) is responsible for the contents of the integrated annual report. The MB has entrusted the Impact Measurement and Integrated Reporting (IMIR) team with the coordination of the report. At the start of the reporting process, the MB agrees with IMIR on the outline of the report. IMIR collects information through interviews with the business departments, data from internal systems, and other internal and external sources. Representatives from the business departments review the draft report to assess its accuracy and completeness. IMIR safeguards compliance of the report with relevant standards and guidelines (see paragraph Standards and reporting guidelines). IMIR also coordinates external assurance of the integrated annual report.
