Over 4.6 thousand clients and employees of the Group participated in the selection of subjects to the Sustainability Report which has been prepared according the highest reporting standards. Due to the interactive solutions, the document presents the strategy carried out in a comprehensive way, including numerous practices implemented in companies of the Group.
The Sustainability Report for 2014 is the third consecutive social report of TAURON. Its content is based on pillars of Sustainability Strategy of TAURON Group, i.e. energy supply security, customer orientation, environmental protection, approach to workforce and managing economic and social impact. Good practices are assigned to each of the areas, best illustrating the approach of the Group to individual issues.
Maintaining the high level of reporting, while drafting the text of the report, once again the best international standards were used. The compliance of the data included in the publication with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative – GRI G4 has been additionally confirmed by an independent verification.
The scale of consultations with the environment of the Group is also worth attention. In the previous year, over 3.5 thousand of TAURON Group stakeholders were involved in the process of dialogue during the creation of the Sustainability Report; within the consultations carried out this year, this number exceeded 4.6 thousand persons.
- The opinion of the environment is of key importance for us, since it determines the directions we should follow. Owing to such a large number of answers we have collected within our consultations, we have a feeling that in our report we deal with such issues which are particularly important for our stakeholders. In addition, a number of good practices of companies of TAURON Group we present is the confirmation that we treat our non-financial activity with attention equal to our business activity – says Dariusz Lubera, President of the Management Board of TAURON Polska Energia.
Last year's report of TAURON was very well received on the market. Its interactive character was appreciated by the jury of the Social Reports 2014 competition having awarded the "Distinction for bold use of Internet" and Internet users themselves who submitted the highest number of votes for the report ("Award of Internet Users"). The decision on placing the full text of the publication once again in the virtual world was natural – however, new technological solutions were used. The website was built in accordance with the RWD (Responsive Web Design) technology, due to which it adjusts to screens of various sizes (stationary devices, tablets, smartphones, etc.). The report also contains many facilities for users, such as, inter alia, importing of selected data to various file formats, making notes, or accessibility tools for the visually impaired. Owing to that, users may freely analyse the contents, using the interactive nature of the report. The publication is consistent with the available annual Report of TAURON Group, the full text of which was also published on Internet ( http://raportroczny2014.tauron.pl ).
