The PZU Group integrated report comprises data for the period from 1 January to 31 December 2019 and is the third repot of this type prepared by the Group. This is part of the overall strategy aiming to understand and improve CSR results and cultivate relations with key stakeholders.
"Our ambition is to constantly improve in the area of corporate social responsibility, including increasing transparency. The report has been prepared in accordance with the prevailing non-financial reporting requirements laid down in the amended Accounting Act of 29 September 1994.
In addition, preparing this report we followed the guidance of voluntary, best global guidelines and standards – international reporting standard – Global Reporting Initiative (GRI Standards), international integrated reporting guidelines (International Integrated Reporting Council, IIRC), and guidelines of the European Commission itemizing climate-related data and recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)."
In accordance with the requirements of the Accounting Act, the report on the PZU Group’s non-financial information in 2019 encompasses non-financial information and consolidated data pertaining to the PZU Group and PZU, its parent company in line with the structure of the organization included in the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2019. The data from PZU Życie, Alior Bank Group, Pekao Group, LINK4, AAS Balta, AB Lietuvos Draudimas and PrJSC IC PZU Ukraine are consolidated and presented in the information pertaining to the PZU Group. Alior Bank and Bank Pekao, in turn, have decided to present separately, as part of their Management Board activity reports, separate disclosures on non-financial data, as public interest entities. Alior Bank presented them also in the consolidated form. The PZU Zdrowie Group (PZU Zdrowie as the parent company), Armatura Kraków and PZU CO (CIG) are not public interest entities hence they are not subject to separate regulatory obligations regarding disclosure of non-financial data. Information regarding these companies and the other PZU Group companies has been presented in the consolidated data showcased in the report. Additionally, updated consolidated non-financial data for 2018 for the aforementioned entities were presented.
In line with the approach stemming from the principle of materiality, the various pieces of non-financial information have been presented to the extent necessary to evaluate the development, performance and standing of the PZU Group. Relatively less space has been devoted to smaller entities whose impact on the overall depiction of the PZU Group is minor or simply marginal.
