S Group's external reporting and communication are primarily developed in accordance with the expectations of co-op members, personnel and other stakeholders.
Being a leader in responsibility requires systematic management. To do this, comprehensive and reliable monitoring information is needed on a number of key indicators. External reporting should also be transparent.
The review applies the G4 reporting guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), taking into consideration the cooperative structure of S Group.
The S Group-level review looks at the policies made at the S Group level and their implementation, as well as key indicators and measures in Finland. An exception is the financial figures, which also include the operations in the Baltic countries and Russia. As legally independent businesses, the cooperatives also report their own operations in their annual reports and on their websites. The review has not been verified by an external party.
