Methodology

The process of defining the report’s contents, conducted at the end of 2017 and reviewed in 2018, entailed a review of the hitherto reporting issues in accordance with the three steps required by the GRI Standards, i.e. identification, prioritization and validation.  On this basis, an analysis was first conducted of the research conducted among the key Stakeholders (clients and employees), internal documents, sustainable development practices and trends in the industry as a result of which a list of the reporting aspects aligned to the Bank Group’s operations was created.  The aspects selected were subject to prioritization by the managers of the Bank and Companies from the vantage point of two criteria: reputation impact and the Bank’s business strategy. As a result, the list of aspects pertaining to the Bank Millennium Group’s sustainable development was prepared. [GRI 102-46]

Below please find the list of reported aspects selected during the reporting process along with the bounds of their impact. The aspects have been divided into three groups to reflect the findings of the analysis according to the two criteria mentioned above. The first group consists of the key aspects for the Bank Group’s operations that have been captured in detail in the report. Their description entails the management approach used and the specific resultant outcomes. The second group of topics are the ones that reference the Bank Group’s operations to a medium degree.  Their description in the report is limited to the resultant outcomes or a qualitative description. The third group of aspects consists of issues of lesser significance. Concise information or reference to other documents may be found in the report.

The analysis of all these aspects gives consideration to their nature and impact. The boundaries of the internal aspects have been labeled with the letter (int.), while external ones have been labeled with the letter (ext.). The nature of the impact has in turn been divided into a direct impact (d) and an indirect impact (in) – related to the firm’s business relations. [GRI 103-1]
