DB Group has opted for the voluntary submission of a non-financial statement (NFS). 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 also remained material in 2021:
|COMPONENTS OF THE NFS
VOLUNTARY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Respect for human rights
The contents of the NFS 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.
In connection with the requirements of the CSR-RUG, we were not able to identify any material risks associated with our business activities, business relationships, products or services that are likely to have serious negative effects on the most important non-financial aspects (environmental, social, employee matters, respect for human rights and the fight against corruption and bribery). We are working intensively on the effects listed in this Integrated Report.
Our risk management also takes into account the effects on the non-financial aspects and issues.
