Kering as first luxury group to publish an integrated report
Kering published its first integrated report today detailing the entire Group’s activity for 2017. Kering’s integrated report release is a first of its kind in the Luxury sector, aligning with the Group’s commitment to transparency and proactively putting this principle into practice.
As a significant achievement in Kering’s corporate reporting, integrated reporting provides a more holistic platform to consider the value created by a business, by also considering non-financial resources and the links between all business functions that contribute to success. As such, Kering’s integrated report delivers a comprehensive view of the Group’s global value creation gained from its creative, financial, environmental, ethical and social dimensions. Ultimately, the report allows for a deeper understanding of the fundamental building blocks that underline the Group’s value creation and the clarity gained can result in more informed decision making for the future.
The document also provides a complete and refreshed overview of the Group, its history and its strategic vision. Furthermore, each stage of Kering’s value chain is illustrated by the actions, commitments and results of the Group.
