Successful sustainability activities require a methodical approach to reporting. Swedish Match continues to report its sustainability information according to the guidelines set forth by Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3, in order to reach measurable, transparent, clear, and comparable results.
The 2012 Sustainability Report follows the 2011 reporting document published on Swedish Match’s website. Information from this document is to be used as a complement to the 2012 Annual Report.
While the Annual Report includes general information about how Swedish Match works with sustainability, the Sustainability Report includes more specific information requested by GRI, as well as facts concerning Swedish Match’s sustainability reporting process. This includes information about the Company’s materiality analysis, stakeholder dialogue, as well as detailed reporting on prioritized performance indicators.
Information provided in this report is intended primarily for stakeholders with an interest in the Company’s sustainability performance. Prioritized stakeholder groups include consumers, customers/retailers, employees, government/regulators, investors/ financial analysts, the scientific-health community, and suppliers.
Swedish Match currently reports according to the GRI reporting guidelines for self-declared B level. Third party Application Level Check provider Tofuture Oy has confirmed Swedish Match’s self-declaration that the 2012 Sustainability Report meets GRI G3 ‘B’ level reporting requirements.
