Logica has published its first separate CSR report. For the last couple of years the company has covered corporate responsibility in two or three pages at the end of the annual report. Now, though, a full CSR report has been published conforming to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. GRI is the organisation dedicated to developing global guidelines for reporting on economic, environmental and social performance.
The full 94-page report is here. There’s lots of detailed information on various environmental actions and it spells out the plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6% in 2009, towards a 50% reduction by 2020, based on a 2008 baseline.
The report also points out Logica’s involvement in several greenhouse gas registration, monitoring and management initiatives. The company maintains the global CO2 emissions transaction registry for the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat (UNFCCC), it implemented and runs the UK Environmental Emissions Monitoring System (EEMS) for the UK Department for Business Enterprise Regulatory Reform (formerly DTI) across the oil and gas industries and developed the air pollutant and GHG inventory system for EDF France.
It’s all good stuff, but the report, which seems to have just come out, covers 2008 when the company’s preliminary financial results for 2009 are just 10 days away.
