1 The social performance indicators include all GF companies with ten or more employees.

2 Due to the implementation of a new Sustainability Reporting Tool the historical datapoints have been consolidated and restated. The same consolidation principles apply as in the Annual Report 2017.

3 Management positions are defined as members of the management board of each business entity or managers who report to the managing director.

4 Figure shows the number of employees who were requested to participate in the survey.

5 The basis for calculation of the accident rate indicator was changed from “1’000 employees” to “one million working hours”, in alignment with industry practice.

6 The target line is calculated linearly based on the baseline data and according to the defined target.
