The 2019 Integrated Report has been drafted on the basis of the main international reporting standards, which in addition to the accounting standards in force, also include the Framework for Integrated Reporting published by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and the reporting standards contained in the “GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards” issued by the GRI – Global Reporting Initiative, with the related supplement for the Financial Services sector. The reporting process also meets the compliance requirements (including the provisions of Legislative Decree 254/16), external communication and the Group’s ranking in the main international sustainability indices.

In addition, given the importance that the SASB (Sustainability Accounting Standards) are assuming in relation to the increasing demands for information from investors for the ESG assessment of target portfolio companies, the document presents which indicators are required by this standard, verifying their correspondence with the reported indicators. With the aim of meeting the need for greater consistency, transparency and uniformity in terms of reporting, the Report also presents which indicators correspond to the “material ESG metrics” presented at the World Economic Forum 2020 in the document “Toward Common Metrics and Consistent Reporting of Sustainable Value Creation” with the aim of providing a common and universal framework for non-financial reporting.

In the process of developing Poste Italiane’s sustainability strategy, listening to the needs of key stakeholders has played a pivotal role for the Group, with the Company ensuring that these are integrated into their sustainability policies.
