This index provides an overview of our reporting against the GRI G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines.
Our self-assessment of our Sustainable Development Report 2010 indicates that we are a B+ reporter.
The Global Reporting Initiative
The Global Reporting Initiative's G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines provide a comprehensive set of indicators covering the economic, environmental and ethical impacts of a company's performance. These reporting principles have informed our reporting for many years. We have self-assessed ourselves as a B+ reporter according to GRI-defined application levels.
In the links below we set out all the company profile disclosures, as well as the ‘core’ performance indicators required by GRI. ‘Additional’ indicators have only been included where Unilever’s reporting covers them either fully or partially.
For each of these elements we state whether Unilever’s level of reporting covers the requirements fully (F) or partially (P). We also provide here links or signposts to where this information can be found either in our online Sustainable Development Report 2010 (SDR) or in our Annual Report and Accounts 2010 (ARA). Where core indicators are not deemed as material to our business for this year, we have marked this as NM (not material). Where we currently do not have information in our public reporting to answer a requirement, we mark this as NA (not available).
