  • US$21.75 (Hardcopy)

For 2015, the Sustainability Report highlights the sustainability of ADB’s investments and organizational activities during 2013– 2014. A separate detailed Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) index contains the responses of ADB to standard and specific material disclosures in the GRI’s G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and G4 Financial Services Sector Guidelines.

The Sustainability Report provides a single point of reference to which stakeholders interested in understanding ADB’s commitment to sustainable development can turn. The report has hyperlinks that direct readers to further information already available via the ADB web page, which in turn improves accessibility to information that ADB has published and stakeholders want to find.

The content of the Sustainability Report and detailed GRI Index enables stakeholders to assess ADB’s sustainability performance during 2013-2014. The Sustainability Report focuses on:

  • ADB’s investments in poverty reduction and inclusive economic growth, environment and climate change, regional integration, and infrastructure
  • ADB’s private sector, finance and knowledge partnerships, and governance and safeguard matters; and
  • ADB’s human resource activities, environmental footprint, and community activities as topics that are material to ADB’s stakeholders in a sustainability context.
