Since 2016 mBank has been using integrated reporting to bring together information about its performance and growth prospects. The decision to adopt the most advanced and, at the same time, the most difficult annual reporting methodology was driven by our belief that conventional financial reporting and corporate social responsibility reporting taken out of business context were not sufficient to fully reflect the history of our Group.
With the requirements of the international integrated reporting standard in mind, we are forwardlooking, but our actions and strategy take into account events, market changes and innovations that are difficult to predict and will require flexibility in the long term.
While preparing the integrated report we do not lose sight of the expectations of the most demanding report users – our investors, representatives of financial institutions, supervisory authorities, analysts and the media. Ensuring full compliance with the IR standard, we wanted our report to provide users with the key information and enable them to analyse and compare the data with previous years’ results.
At the same time, investors want to know the risks posed by the company’s approach to sustainable growth and analyse this issue in combination with purely business data. Talking about what we do from the point of view of value creation seems to be the best way to respond to those expectations.
