GRI CONTENT INDEX


The basis of our 2015 GRI response remains G3.1 and is aligned with an Application Level A+. This is with reference to the information disclosed in the printed Barloworld 2015 Integrated Report and the information provided in other supplementary documents as well as the other information available on this website. (www.barloworld.com)

We are aware of the transition to the GRI G4 reporting framework and have, where relevant, mapped our G3.1 responses to GRI G4 for ease of reference.

Following from the above, for indicative purposes, we have also provided a filter showing relevant G3.1 responses to the United Nations Global Compact Communication of Progress (UNGC COP) and the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index (DJSI).

Notes:
* On-line responses provided below are mostly more comprehensive than those referenced in the Integrated Report and related documents for reporting.
