In this chapter, we present the facts and figures of our report. The report profile specifies the reporting framework, shows how data was collected, and describes how the content of the report was determined. We use indicators to facilitate comparison of our ecological, economic and social performance. The figures have been subjected to a limited assurance audit. We have compiled our goals, prizes and awards into a single overview. The GRI Index documents Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany’s fulfillment of the requirements of the GRI guidelines on sustainability reporting. In the Communication on Progress for the Global Compact, we describe the implementation of the Compact’s ten principles.
