This is the eleventh consecutive year that Garrigues has published an Integrated Report. This report corresponds to the Garrigues 2016 fiscal year.
In preparing the report, we have taken into account the guidelines and recommendations of the integrated reporting framework published by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) in December 2013, adapting them to the activity and reality of Garrigues. We have also taken the October 2016 GRI Standards into account for the first time.
We are committed to providing information on our sustainability policies, goals and progress and to maintaining dialog with our stakeholders to continue improving our performance in this area.
Eleven years ago we began to publish an annual sustainability report in a pioneering attempt to provide detailed information on our commitment to all of our stakeholders. We have also broken new ground in the legal profession by publishing an integrated report, by using the G4 GRI standards and the 2016 GRI standards.
