Axiata of Malaysia-controlled Dialog says it has released "Sri Lanka’s first-ever A+ GRI-checked Sustainability Report," according to a statement by the country's mobile incumbent. Also revealed, the report highlighted its "Triple Bottom Line performance across 49 core GRI G3 indicators as well as selected telecommunication sector supplement indicators."
Further, the company also indicated its report was "audited by Det Norske Veritas AS, and [thereby] validated through an application level check and third party Assurance Statement." And that; "Dialog’s 2010 Sustainability Report also reflects Dialog’s learning from the first Gap Analysis carried out in Sri Lanka vis–a-vis the seven principal performance dimensions detailed in the ISO 26000 guideline for the application of Corporate Social Responsibility. The gap analysis was carried out by Det Norske Veritas AS. The ISO standard and guidelines measures the capacity of organisations to seize sustainability-related opportunities and respond to business risks, through the leverage of underlying processes and systems."
According to the company; "GRI is the world’s leading sustainability reporting framework, which focuses on continuous improvement and application based on a Triple Bottom Line focus. Sustainability reports based on GRI are used to demonstrate commitment to sustainable development and measure performance over time with respect to sustainability principles and indicators, laws, standards and voluntary initiatives."
