Rules of procedure

Implementation of the Sustainability Initiative has brought to light an assortment of issues that demand a professional approach and has shown the importance of formulating rules that can ensure open, transparent processes in keeping with the idea of broad consultation.

The fourth Advisory Group meeting laid the foundations for two rules of procedure to follow when amending or developing the Initiative. One of these rules deals with the process of modifying the sustainability indicators, the other with holding the annual general meetings.
