The objective of the Sustainability Report 2008 is to provide information to all Company stakeholders regarding financial, environmental and social results for 2008. Sol Meliá also has the responsibility to provide truthful, comprehensive and relevant information for all of its stakeholders.
2008 has seen changes in both the reporting format and methodology in order to adjust both the format and content of the information to current trends in corporate social responsibility. The format is different to 2007 and also presents numerous opportunities for improvement (indicated in each chapter throughout the Report), aiming to become one of the most important tools in the interdepartmental management of sustainability at Sol Meliá.
Our Sustainability Report 2008 is based on a number of different recommendations, particularly the guidelines to the preparation of the Sustainability Report from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI G3) and the recommendations in the GRI Boundary Protocol.
