The Orabank group can call on a process intended to pass on financial, economic, environmental and social information to stakeholders. The purpose of this transparency is to show them our policies and governance, along with our roll-out plans and performance measures.
Every year, an annual report on our operations is produced, and an integrated annual report has been published for the 2016 fiscal year. The previous report on our operations was published in 2016. Our reporting seeks to be progressive. Since 2016, we have been applying the latest version of the new GRI standards as a frame of reference, since it is the most used and recognised reporting framework in the world.
We have also respected the IIRC principles in producing our first integrated report to present the Orabank group’s overall performance. Our long-term vision encourages us to be pro-active, and to remain vigilant as regards environmental and social issues.
Our claim of GRI compliance
The Orabank group applies the GRI reporting principles and prepares its reports in compliance with GRI Core standards. Orabank also backs the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Principles for Responsible Investment.
Our commitment on reporting
Reporting and data-processing tools have been improved and optimised for greater reliability and ownership. We brought in MATERIALITY-Reporting – reporting experts – to apply the GRI standards and IIRC frames of reference.
Our performance indicators
To ensure that our approach is consistent and easy to follow, we are continuing the efforts made in reporting from previous years. The annual figures set out below show the progress we have made in the last three years.
2017 human-resources report
The human-resources report covers the whole Orabank group, comprising Oragroup, SA (the holding company), all the banks (Orabank Benin, Orabank Gabon, Orabank Guinea, Orabank Mauritania, Orabank Chad, Orabank Togo) and Orabank Côte d’Ivoire with all its branches (Orabank Burkina Faso, Orabank Guinea-Bissau, Orabank Mali, Orabank Niger and Orabank Senegal).
The human-resources report sets out and measures the main employee-related indicators and changes to them over the last few years. Beyond the figures, these indicators can be used to give concrete expression to the group’s various employee-relations policy commitments over the last few years.
Scope of reporting
100% of the Orabank group, comprising Oragroup, SA (the holding company), all the banks (Orabank Benin, Orabank Gabon, Orabank Guinea, Orabank Mauritania, Orabank Chad, Orabank Togo) and Orabank Côte d’Ivoire with all its branches (Orabank Burkina, Orabank Guinea-Bissau, Orabank Mali, Orabank Niger and Orabank Senegal).
Orabank has also conducted a materiality study to prioritise relevant challenges and enhance its strategic roadmap. Although we are under no regulatory obligation as regards reporting, we are committed to a proactive and voluntary approach to providing information on our CSR (corporate social responsibility) performance.
Period and cycle
We have been publishing annual reports on our CSR approach since 2014. Our most recent report, on 2016 data, was published in 2017. For the 2017 data, we have chosen a digital reporting format, which enables more regular updating of our information.
GRI reporting principles
These reporting principles are essential for achieving a high-quality sustainable development report. Each reporting principle comprises a requirement, along with guidelines on methods of applying the principle. To ensure an approach to quality that meets GRI expectations on the standards, the organisation is assured that the tests indicated for each principle by MATERIALITY-Reporting, GRI data partner for France, are applied.
MATERIALITY-Reporting, GRI data partner for France, checked the GRI-standards reporting principles, while both carrying out a critical analysis and auditing the general compliance of the GRI-content index.
Changes and reformulation
No major changes took place during the period.
