Axiata Group Berhad | Sustainability & National Contribution Report 2016
Axiata’s 2016 Sustainability Report provides detailed disclosure of the Group’s management of EES
risks and opportunities for the financial year ended 31 December 2016. The report is in compliance with
the GRI-G4 guidelines, addressing 23 material aspects covering 33 identified indicators. Our materiality
mapping methodology is specified on pages 20 and 21 of this report.
This report discusses the sustainability of the Group as a whole. The 2016 volume of our Sustainability
Report differs from past years’ in that a focused effort was made to harmonise and integrate the
reporting methods used throughout the Group, including our OpCos. We note that our OpCos’ operating
environments may vary significantly from one market to the next, but we have nevertheless made the
attempt to harmonise general reporting areas.
