4 The social and the environmental index KPIs were restated due to the divestment of the iron foundry of GF Casting Solutions in Herzogenburg (Austria). In the calculation of the target relevant KPIs for all the years the iron foundry is considered pro rata (9 months of 2019). The site of GF Casting Solutions in Werdohl (Germany) is excluded due to the shift to the sites in Austria and Romania.
5 The production volume is defined based on the specificities of the businesses of the individual divisions: as “produced tonnes” for GF Piping Systems, as “gross value added” (it includes all operating income substracting the costs of materials and products, changes in inventory, and operating expenses) for GF Casting Solutions and as “hours worked” for GF Machining Solutions.
6 The index represents the top 25 companies ranked as most sustainable out of the SMI expanded index based on the assessment done by an independent sustainability rating agency.
7 The independent Belgian agency Forum ETHIBEL reconfirmed GF for inclusion in the Ethibel EXCELLENCE Investment Register since 08/05/2020. This selection indicates that the company performs better than average in its sector in terms of sustainability.
