Listing, Trading, Clearing, Post-trade, IT services and Market data
The 2011 report is Deutsche Boerse Group’s fourth corporate responsibility (CR) report and covers the period from 1 January to 31 December 2011. The CR report is published annually in German and English and complements our annual report in addressing interested stakeholders of our Company. The content of the report and emphasis on certain topics are essentially in accordance with the third generation (G3.1) guidelines on sustainability reporting of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). We are aware that there is some uncertainty in the data on which this report is based. This is particularly true for key environmental figures, due to limited opportunities for data recording and control at our smaller locations and the estimates that are necessary in association with this. We are continuously working to standardize and improve the internal policies, processes and controls relating to our data reporting system worldwide.
Verification of key figures
All quantitative data in the various chapters as well as the qualitative statements in the chapter on the economy were subject to a review by KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, an independent external auditor, to obtain limited assurance regarding the report. The consolidated financial statements of Deutsche Börse Group as at 31 December 2011 were audited by KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft.
