Corporate responsibility reporting scope
The Corporate responsibility report 2013 provides basic information about Kemira's economic, environmental and social performance in the reporting period January 1 to December 31, 2013, unless otherwise stated.
The 2013 Corporate responsibility report is prepared in accordance with the Core option of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. The report is meant to be read in context with the other sections of the Kemira 2013 Report and the Kemira Group Financial Statements 2013. Financial reporting has been prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
The reporting boundary for activities within the Kemira organization is the same as for financial reporting, and the boundaries outside the organization relate to supply chain and to the indirect CO2 emissions that are a consequence of Kemira's activities but occur from sources not owned or controlled by Kemira.
The content of the Corporate responsibility report was reviewed and approved by Kemira Board of Directors in February 2014. The content related to economic, environmental and social performance has been independently assessed by Deloitte against the GRI principles for defining report content and quality. Deloitte has checked Kemira’s reporting according to the GRI G4 guidelines and confirmed it to be in accordance with the Core option.
Kemira has been reporting on its environmental performance since the early 1990s. Until 2010, we used Responsible Care Reporting Guidelines of the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) as a framework for reporting. The first report prepared according to the GRI reporting guidelines G3.1 was published in February 2012 and covered Kemira's sustainability performance in 2011.
The reports for years 2003–2012 are available on Kemira’s website.
