7. Control

The company states how and what performance indicators related to sustainability are used in its regular internal planning and control processes. It discloses how suitable processes ensure reliability, comparability and consistency of the data used for internal management and external communication.

Deutsche Hypo currently provides NORD/LB with internal key performance indicators that can be used to measure the economic value added by the NORD/LB Group for its customers and society. Examples of these include volumes of financing in the fields of healthcare or social welfare. The values are collected Group-wide based on a defined reporting process and reported in NORD/LB’s Group sustainability report. The degree to which targets are being met is tracked continually and communicated regularly to the Erweiterter Konzernvorstand (Extended Group Board of Managing Directors) and the stakeholders. The results achieved and feedback form the basis for the planning for the coming years and therefore enable a continual improvement in the economic value added.
