Chairman's Message Introduction
GLOBAL REPORTING INITIATIVES INDICATORS

This Annex describes the extent to which the MTR Corporate Sustainability Report 2002 reports on those indicators proposed by the Global Reporting Initiative Guidelines (June 2002).

The following key has been used:

  • a Indicator as described in GRI Guidelines is fully reported;
  • ~ Indicator is partially reported. This is usually due to (a) the GRI indicator has multiple elements and not all elements are fully reported against or (b) one of MTR's main operating Divisions (Operations, Project or Property) fully reports against the indicator but the other Divisions do not.
  • - Indicator is not included in the MTR Corporate Sustainability Report 2002.

The assessment indicates that the MTR Corporate Sustainability Report 2002 partially or completely reports against 84% of the indicators proposed by the GRI Guidelines.
