This report covers the performance of the Croda Group for the period 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015.
The reporting of some objectives and targets may cover a wider period, this will be made clear where relevant.
We follow an annual reporting cycle; our printed Sustainability Report (formerly CSR Report up to 2010) is published in April each year and released in conjunction with our Annual Report. Our GRI report is released exclusively online.
The table allowing navigation to the standard and specific disclosures that we provide responses to can be found on the 'Content Index' webpage here.
The financial information contained in the Annual Report has been externally audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP Chartered Accountants and Statutory Auditors, where detailed in a statement can be found. Along with this process, the financial and non-financial information in the directors’ report, including the Sustainability section, has been reviewed for inconsistencies with the audited financial statements.
Whilst the decision to assure our Sustainability Report or accompanying online GRI report is reviewed on an annual basis, at this time we are not seeking to externally assure information contained in these reports.
