Magyar Telekom Group has committed, among other things, to publish reports about its sustainability performance annually.
Since 2004, these reports have always summarized the Group’s operation, activities and achievements along the principles of sustainability. When the reports are compiled the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) guidelines are applied, thus ensuring compliance with the principle that the reports are to be the cornerstones ensuring transparency and international comparability.
The year-2007 report was the first in Hungary to meet the requirements of the GRI G3 A+ application level, which means full compliance with the GRI G3 guidelines. Since then, Magyar Telekom has prepared reports applying the highest level of compliance with international standards each year. Since the year-2014 report has been compiled along the new Fourth-generation Principles set forth by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI G4) applied in accordance on Comprehensive level. The 2016 Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Comprehensive option.
The independent assurance and certification of compliance with the GRI criteria was conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers along the ISAE 3000 international standard. In order to ensure authenticity, the reports are always certified by independent, third parties, and the relevant assurance statements are attached to them.
As in previous years, the year-2016 report also addresses our progress achieved in the context of the principles set forth by the UN Global Compact. Magyar Telekom committed to the UN Global Compact and the 10 principles set forth therein regarding human rights, working conditions, environment and anticorruption in 2009.
The 2016 report represents the first year achievements of the fourth sustainability strategy of Magyar Telekom Group valid in the period 2016-2020. The strategic goals were developed with the aim to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set forth in 2015. Our contribution to these goals is being highlighted in each chapter of the 2016 report.
The Sustainability Report is compiled in real teamwork based on close cooperation among the relevant units and affiliates.
We welcome any comments regarding the sustainability reports sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org address.
In order to get easier the relevant information we publish the Y2014 and Y2015 reports by chapters as well.
