Performance on Economic Value Generated and Distributed
GRI Content: G4-EC1
SGS showed a robust performance in 2015 with total revenues reaching CHF 5.7 billion. This represents revenue growth of 3.6%, of which 2.0% was organic and 1.6% was contributed by recently acquired acquisitions. Trading conditions remained difficult during the year with the fall in commodity prices, primarily impacting Oil, Gas & Chemicals, Minerals and Industrial Services. Group revenue declined 2.9% in comparison with the reported figures for December 2014 due to the strengthening of the Swiss Franc against the majority of other currencies. Achieving growth during this challenging year underlines the strength of the Group’s strategy and the depth and balance of its portfolio. For more information on our economic performance this year, please see our Annual Report.
Our Green Book reveals that in 2015 the sustainability performance of our operations represented around 5.9% of revenue in our Group, based on costs such as electricity consumption, natural turnover and sickness absence. These costs have been actively managed through over 700 sustainability projects in our affiliates around the world since 2011.
