Responsibility of the Board of Directors and the Executive management for the CSR Report

The Board of Directors and the Executive Management are responsible for ongoing activities regarding the environment, health and safety, quality, social responsibility and sustainable development, and for the preparation and presentation of the CSR Report in accordance with the applicable criteria. The criteria are detailed in the CSR Report section and comprise the parts of the Sustainability  Reporting Guidelines G3 issued by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) that apply for the CSR Report and of the accounting and calculation principles that the Company has developed.

Auditor's responsibility

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the CSR Report based on our examination. We have performed the assurance engagement in accordance with RevR 6 Assurance of Sustainability Reports issued by FAR. The assignment comprises a review of the CSR Report as a whole and an audit of certain information specified below. The objective of an audit is to obtain reasonable assurance that the information in the CSR Report is free of material misstatements. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the quantitative and qualitative information in the CSR Report. A review is mainly limited to making inquiries of personnel responsible for ­sustainability issues, and applying analytical and other review procedures. Hence, the conclusion based on our review procedures does not comprise the same level of assurance as the conclusion of our audit. Since this assurance engagement is combined, our conclusions regarding the audit and the review will be presented in separate sections.

Our audit is limited to the following information:

a. esponsible gaming – The table “Key indicators for responsible gaming”. Read more.

The criteria on which our review is based are the parts of the ­Sustainability Reporting Guidelines G3, published by The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which are applicable to the CSR Report, as well as the accounting and calculation principles that the Company has developed. These are detailed in the CSR Report. We consider these criteria suitable for the preparation of the CSR Report.

We consider the evidence collected during our examination to be sufficient and appropriate in order to support our conclusions listed below.

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the information in the CSR Report which has been subject to our review has not, in all material respects, been prepared in accordance with the above stated criteria.

In our opinion, the information in the CSR Report which has been subject to our audit has, in all material respects, been prepared in accordance with the above stated criteria.
