In 2017, GEA's Supervisory Board commissioned KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft to provide an independent limited assurance engagement on selected sustainability performance disclosures included in the Non-financial statement for the business year 2017 for the first time.

The following selected key figures on emissions and occupational safety were examined:

  • GRI 305-1 – Direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (scope 1)
  • GRI 305-2 – Indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (scope 2)
  • GRI 305-3 – Other indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (scope 3)
  • GRI 403-2 – Types of injury and rates of injury, occupational diseases, lost days, and absenteeism, and number of work-related fatalities.

The “International Standard on Assurance Engagements“ (ISAE) 3000 was used as a basis for the engagement., cf. Disclosure 102-56. KPMG gave a positive opinion.
