Sustainability reporting

The 2022 Integrated Report refers to the reporting/calendar year 2022. For the purpose of comparison, most of the key figures are also presented for financial years 2021 and 2020.The Integrated Report is published on an annual basis. The 2022 Integrated Report will be published on March 30, 2023 (2021 Integrated Report: March 31, 2022). The Integrated Report addresses the key stakeholder groups of DB Group. The reporting covers all material economic, social and environmental aspects. All fully consolidated DB Group companies are included in the reporting. Deviations from this reporting scope are noted as such.

The data collection methods and bases of calculation used for the data in the Integrated Report are based on the relevant standards:

  • GRI standards: The Integrated Report was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. In the GRI Index, we refer to the contents of general and specific disclosures.
  • CSR-RUG: We also implement the requirements of the CSR Directive Implementation Act (CSR-RUG) on a voluntary basis. Information on the key areas of action can be found in the non-financial statement.
  • UN Global Compact: In addition, the Integrated Report provides information on the implementation of the ten principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC).
  • TCFD: Moreover, DB Group follows the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) on the reporting of climate-related information. The TCFD index lists references to the relevant passages in the report.
  • Audit: Material sustainability-related content, indicators and text passages that do not fall within the scope of the statutory audit of the management report with reasonable assurance are marked by the section heading “Further disclosures” and a gray background, and are audited with limited assurance by a third party appointed separately by the Management Board, PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (PwC).
