Transparency and Ratings
Transparency has been a requirement for all of Fluidra’s stakeholders and, in particular, for our investors, who not only assess our performance in the financial area, but also evaluate our ESG performance.
At Fluidra, we believe that there is a need for greater consistency and transparency in the disclosure of business activities and their impact on the environment and society. That is why Fluidra works to incorporate the most demanding standards in non-financial information reporting in its Integrated Annual Report, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the International Integrated Reporting Framework (IR Framework), in addition to complying with non-financial disclosure regulations at the European level.
Fluidra participates in and is evaluated annually by various sustainability indexes and ratings, which measure the company’s performance and progress in environmental, social and governance matters. All these methodologies, indices and ratings establish the best ESG practices in companies, and we work as a group to incorporate their metrics into our day-to-day business.
The main indexes and ratings in which Fluidra participates are as follows:
