Scope of Report
The 2012 MCI Sustainability Report covers the period from January 1st 2012 until December 31st 2012. The scope and the issues covered in our sustainability report were selected based on the GRI G3.1 Guidelines, the GRI Boundary Protocol, stakeholder input and on-going trend analysis.
This report has been externally and independently verified by GRI and awarded a certificate of conformance at level C. This website also serves as the MCI Communication on Progress (COP) Report for the United Nations Global Compact. MCI is amongst 620 companies of the 10,000 signatories to the UN Global Compact who are reporting at the GC Advanced Level.
We believe the boundary and scope of this report provide a faithful representation of our Sustainability Strategies and material, economic, environmental and social issues and impacts of MCI.
The information in this report covers all MCI and Ovation operations but does not yet cover the following brands and joint ventures: Logos, Dorier, Faircontrol or B-Com. No significant changes from the previous reporting periods have been made, including the boundaries and measurement methods applied throughout the report. The 2011 Carbon footprint figure has been updated due to some new data becoming available.
The key objective of this report is to drive performance of our sustainability processes and promote accountability.
MCI is a passionate believer, thought leader and innovator in sustainability reporting. This is our forth sustainability report and to date we have created over 30 sustainability reports for our clients.
