Graphic Performance Reporting
Graphic Performance Reporting
Wintershall Dea is guided by international reporting standards

In order to meet the information needs of our stakeholders, we regular report non-financial information and follow international and industry-specific reporting standards like IPIECA or IOGP. In this way, Wintershall Dea ensures that its performance can also be compared on an international scale. As a future listed company, we plan to report to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). We also plan to support the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

The Global Reporting Initiative is a multi-stakeholder organisation. It was founded in 1997 with the aim to develop sustainability reporting guidelines that help cpmpanies to report on their economic, ecological and social activities. 

The industry developed framework helps companies to shape the structure and content of their sustainability reporting. The focus is on relevant topics in the oil and gas industry.
