About Our Integrated Annual Report
This report provides an overview of our activities as Cashbuild Limited (hereafter referred to as Cashbuild, the Group or the Company) and our subsidiary companies, for the period 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014. This report has been prepared in accordance with the recommendations on the Third Report of the King Committee on Corporate Governance in South Africa (commonly known as King III), and consequently strives to provide information on all aspects of Cashbuild’s activities in an integrated fashion. In keeping with the direction adopted in the Company’s 2013 Integrated Annual Report, this report aims to provide readers with a balanced overview of Cashbuild and its activities, and of the means by which the Company creates value for each of its identified stakeholder groups. Furthermore, the report is intended to provide insight regarding Cashbuild’s ability to sustain both its own growth and the development of its relationships with these stakeholder groups in the future. The report has been compiled with the assistance of GSA Campbell Consulting and in accordance with the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). It is intended to comply with the GRI’s standards for a Level B Integrated Annual Report. Information regarding the specific indicators covered in the Report can be found in the GRI Table on page 133. Compliance with the GRI’s Level B standard is intended to demonstrate the Company’s commitment to evolving its integrated reporting practices beyond compliance with the GRI’s minimum standard, toward a meaningful discussion of the Company’s management of its material sustainability issues. The report, along with associated relevant information (to which reference is made at various points in the report) is also available on our Cashbuild website at www.cashbuild.co.za In the preparation of this report, Cashbuild has attempted to identify and report on the most significant non-financial considerations and impacts arising from the core activities of the Company, as well as all significant internal and external stakeholder groups with which the Company engages around these issues. Integrated Reporting, by its nature, represents a journey. Our aim is to continue to improve our reporting, extending disclosure and assurance. As part of our journey we have embarked on several initiatives which outcomes are uncertain due to dynamically changing variables. We nonetheless remain committed to seeking improvements in our processes and reporting.
