Sustainability management

Group non-financial report

DB Group has opted for the voluntary submission of a Group non-financial report (NFR). As part of our integrated report approach, we provide comprehensive reports on all material sustainability issues.

Three areas of action were identified in the materiality analysis as material within the meaning of the CSR Directive Imple­mentation Act (CSR-Richtlinie-Umsetzungsgesetz; CSR-RUG); these remained material in the year under review:

The contents of the NFR can be found in the relevant chapters of the Group management report and in the Notes on sustainability, and were prepared in accordance with the inter­national standards of the GRI in the core option and taking into account the reporting requirements of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). In addition, we provide additional voluntary disclosures on further matters.
