We use a number of internal controls and monitoring systems as part of our process for managing and reporting information. These internal systems are important to the overall integrity and credibility of this report. For example, we use a sustainability data management software for the collection of 2015 sustainability data. This web-based software is linked to the GRI and provides an audit trail to increase the rigour and transparency of data collection. The system is designed for one person to enter and submit the data, which is then verified by a different individual prior to being consolidated at the corporate level.
