Metrics and reporting
At Novartis, we are committed to transparent reporting - a central part of our commitment to corporate responsibility.
Our Annual Report serves as our primary reporting mechanism for corporate responsibility, and we have published a combined financial and CR report since 2000.
Our Corporate Responsibility Performance Report consolidates the company’s CR reporting, details our progress and demonstrates our commitment to be a leader in corporate responsibility.
Our CR Performance Report is structured in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 Guidelines, with disclosure at Core application level. We also report a number of additional indicators beyond the requirements for Core level.
As a LEAD participant and a signatory to the UNGC, this report also fulfills our commitment to produce a UNGC Communication on Progress, a public disclosure outlining our progress in implementing the 10 principles of the UNGC. As a result, in the future we will no longer publish separate GRI, HSE and United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Communication on Progress reports.
