We’re pleased to announce that the Amadeus Corporate Responsibility Report 2011, which was prepared in accordance to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3.1 Guidelines, has received GRI’s Application Level A+ Statement, which is the highest possible grade.
The Global Reporting Initiative is a non-profit organization that promotes economic, environmental, and social sustainability, and it has become a common standard for sustainability reporting. Even though GRI’s Application Levels do not provide an opinion on the sustainability performance of the reporting organization, they aim to reflect the degree of transparency against the GRI Guidelines in reporting.
Following GRI’s guidelines requires specific efforts in terms of the broad scope of information to cover, from governance to human rights; and the external verification of the information reported by an external party.
By achieving the A+ Application Level Amadeus demonstrates the maximum possible level of transparency in the reporting, showing our commitment towards corporate responsibility and serving as an important reference for investors particularly concerned with sustainability.
In addition, the process of gathering information and putting the report together gives us the opportunity to identify areas for improvement and to learn from the best practices of other companies either within or outside the travel industry, enriching our company culture.
The full report will be released towards the end of this month, so keep an eye on this blog for the latest news.
