Only few infographics are given. Those are very well done. Still, for better usability and easier understanding for stakeholders, more infographics, which are supported by text are needed.
The balance of the report is rarely given. Whilst risks are described, I would like for Agrana to further explain how unresolved problems are to be addressed in the future.
Some aspects such as the value chain are executed quite good compared to others. Truly implementing GRI means putting in some effort and taking the time to think in an outside-in perspective in depth. I would recommend a change of perspective.
Agrana should take the time to work on strategic performance. Sustainability should not be a side piece of an annual report but actually be conducted by setting up appropriate structures and processes.
Focus on the essential: Often very superficial & advertorial; Agrana should focus on some key elements (for example the „Frucht, „Zucker „ Stärke“ division); Especially non-financial topics & goals are sometimes missing
Defining the values & principles: Values & principles should show specific & graphically; Does also help to be more transparent
Integrate CSR into the management: More focus how CSR is integrated into the management (should be present visually in the report); Including also a stronger focus on the KPI´s & the results
