Definitions of the terms used in our 2007 Corporate Responsibility Report, including data measurement techniques, are provided in Corporate Responsibility Definitions (PDF, 300kb).

ASSURANCE

ANZ has used the AA1000 Assurance Standard (AA1000AS) principles to report on our progress in addressing the needs and interests of our stakeholders. The Corporate Citizenship Company has provided an external assurance statement in keeping with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements ISAE 3000 and AA1000 Assurance Standard. This statement is available in our full CR Report.

GLOBAL REPORTING INITIATIVE

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) provides a generally accepted framework for reporting on an organisation's economic, environmental and social performance. ANZ has used the GRI Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (G3) in our 2007 reporting.

LONDON BENCHMARKING GROUP

ANZ began using the London Benchmarking Group (LBG) framework for measuring and reporting our community contributions and achievements in 2005. The LBG model encourages greater accountability and is recognised as best practice in reporting on corporate community investment. Outcomes has provided an assurance statement on LBG which is available in our full CR Report.
