DENVER, Sep. 19 /CSRwire/ - Liberty Global plc (“Liberty Global” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB and LBTYK) today published its 2012 Corporate Responsibility (CR) report and announced its continued inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (DJSI), which tracks the performance of leading companies in terms of their economic, environmental, governance and social performance.
Our 2012 CR report entitled ‘Discovering New Possibilities’ provides an overview of progress and achievements across Liberty Global during the year, and identifies some of the challenges that we have addressed along the way.
The report focuses on the most important CR issues as defined by the company and our key stakeholders. At the heart of our CR strategy is the core belief that everyone should be able to explore the exciting but often complex digital world in a safe and responsible manner. Accordingly, our efforts are concentrated in four main areas:
Our 2012 CR report meets the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3.1 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines at a GRI-checked Level B. This report represents a step up in disclosure from our first CR Report in 2011, which was a Level C report. GRI is an international non-profit organization that provides a comprehensive sustainability reporting framework that is widely used around the world.
Rick Westerman, Chairman of Liberty Global’s Corporate Responsibility Committee said: “Our new CR report reflects our desire to pursue a sustainable approach to the expansion of digital markets and inclusive access, while responsibly serving the communities in which we operate. However, we know that unlocking economic, societal and environmental value cannot happen in isolation. All our futures – as corporate and individual citizens, as community members and contributors to society – are intrinsic to one another.” “While we have plenty of work ahead to continue advancing our CR initiatives, we are proud to be included in the highly respected Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the second consecutive year in recognition of our achievements.”
