The Group collected data relevant to the key figures at the 31 most important production sites worldwide. These sites account for about 80% of Group sales and more than 90% of all employees. Against the background of a 3% increase in Group net sales in 2013, the rise in energy consumption was lower at 2%, while CO2emissions increased at the same rate as sales. The key figures for employees showed little change. The GRI Index is published as a separate document. This can be downloaded, together with the Sustainability Report 2013, from the Bucher Industries website. As part of our commitment to sustainability we will not be issuing a print publication.
