The report provides aggregated, summary information and is published separately from our financial statements. It reports on quantitative information for the period 1 January to 31 December 2010. For all other information, the period covered is from 1 January 2010 to 30 September 2011.
Compared to our first report for the Year 2009, there has been a significant scope change, with the merger of PE INTERNATIONAL AG and Five Winds International Inc.
The data in this report include the Five Winds organization where possible; with the scope indicated for each of the different graphs in the report.
The sustainability market for consulting, software and content is continuing to grow strongly. As a result of this, we have decided to bring in investor capital. Furthermore, we have changed our management and governance structure to that of an AG, a corporation under German law. Both measures will help us meet the challenges of a growing market.
So we have experienced an outstanding twelve months period in the history of PE. Now, with an organizational arrangement in place to match the sustainability megatrend, we will have even more capability to help our clients manage and mitigate their sustainability risks and – even more importantly – grasp the increasing number of sustainability opportunities that are out there.
That is one reason why, in our second sustainability report, we have placed a strong emphasis on how sustainability can help create business value.
Enjoy reading about it!
We believe that our clients and prospective clients, our suppliers and our partners, should know about what targets we set ourselves and how we perform in what we think are the most significant aspects of sustainable practice.
Through our Sustainability Report, we at PE want to commence a superior, more transparent level of engagement with our stakeholders that will in turn, allow us to add greater value to our client’s businesses as well as our own.
This report is made for you as our stakeholders. Help us make it address your information need even better!
