Welcome to our fifth sustainability report providing information on our economic, social and environmental performance impacts. Data from five fiscal years have been included to reflect trends, achievements and areas for improvement.
As a clean-technology company, our approach to sustainability encompasses more than compliance, risk management and philanthropy. Our natural gas engines move people and freight around the world and our corporate impact goes beyond the immediate communities where we live and work.
Our approach to sustainability has been driven by data and quantifiable measures but the story behind the numbers is even more compelling.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) provides a consistent means for companies to voluntarily report on the economic, social and environmental impacts of their business. The GRI’s 72 indicators and associated methodologies enable companies to facilitate decision-making and improve sustainability performance based on globally recognized indicators.
Perhaps one of the more significant advantages of the GRI is the ability to compare the performance of Westport to our OEM partners and competitors. We work with the largest engine and truck manufacturers in the world and are committed to transparency.
This report, prepared in accordance with the GRI Third Generation Guidelines (G3), discloses data from January 2011 to December 2011. Historical data from the past four fiscal years have been included for comparative purposes, where appropriate.
Westport has self-declared this report to correspond to application Level B in the six-level grid of the GRI G3 guidelines. Application Level B requires us to disclose our performance on at least twenty core economic, social and environmental indicators The GRI has not verified the contents of this report, nor does it take a position on the reliability of information reported herein.
