Welcome to Tsogo Sun
We are pleased to present our integrated annual report to our stakeholders. This report provides a consolidated review of our ﬁnancial, economic, social and environmental performance on matters material to our strategy, our ability to create and sustain value and of interest to our key stakeholders. The process we utilised in determining and applying materiality is included here.
The information has been prepared in accordance with IFRS, the South African Companies Act 2008, the JSE Listings Requirements, King III and the international <IR> framework. The sustainability information included in this report has been guided by the GRI G3 guidelines.
The group is continuously improving its combined assurance model. Assurance for elements of this integrated annual report has been provided through a combination of external and internal sources which will become more formalised in line with future guidance from the IIRC. Our internal auditors, KPMG, provided us with guidance regarding the principles and practices around King III and integrated reporting.
Scope and boundaries
The financial scope and boundaries of this document have been set in accordance with IFRS. The integrated annual report includes all our subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures and covers the period from 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014. Non-financial disclosures focus on the South African operations, except for environmental disclosures, which generate 95% of our earnings.
We have provided summarised financial statements in the integrated annual report, prepared in terms of IFRS and presented in terms of IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The full set of consolidated annual financial statements, including the report from our audit and risk committee and directors’ report, are available online or can be requested directly from our Company Secretary.
The board, assisted by the audit and risk committee, is ultimately responsible for overseeing the preparation, presentation and integrity of the integrated annual report. This was achieved through the setting up of a subcommittee of the audit and risk committee and a team to oversee the reporting process. The directors conﬁrm that they have collectively reviewed the output of the reporting process and the content of the integrated annual report. The directors believe that this integrated annual report addresses the material issues and is a fair presentation of the integrated performance of the group, and therefore approve the report for release.
