The companys mission and performance are effectively and thoroughly presented, not just with regard to the accounts; environmental information disclosure is also comprehensive, and the sustainability report has been further enhanced by being tailored into a specific section. Notably, the company holds regular meetings with the financial community, and offers an opportunity to follow presentations of its annual results and five-year business plan via a streamed broadcast on its website. The company's corporate governance report is comprehensive too."
