We are pleased with the significant steps to enhance our CSR reporting we have taken in the period from fiscal 2016 through fiscal 2018. The CSR materiality assessment we undertook during fiscal 2018 sets the foundation for the next stage in our evolution, as we adjust our CSR strategy to meet stakeholder expectations and to address the material issues that were identified as well as the environmental, social and market challenges that we and our stakeholders see emerging on the horizon.

Deloitte & Touche LLP conducted a review of specified indicators within our 2018 CSR Report in accordance with attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Their assurance report can be found on pages 90-91 of the report and here.

The 2018 report covers data and progress from fiscal year 2018 and includes content from our ongoing global operations. The prior report from fiscal 2017 can be found here. We plan to continue to report on an annual basis moving forward. We welcome feedback on our CSR report and strategy. Please contact us at CSR@wba.com


Data management process

We have a Company-wide approach to recording, measuring and reporting CSR performance. The data presented within our 2018 CSR Report and on the CSR section of our website reflect the ongoing operations of the Company during fiscal 2018 and were produced in accordance with the Walgreens Boots Alliance Corporate Social Responsibility Performance Data Basis of Preparation. More information about our environmental data can be found in our Statement of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions for fiscal 2018 and its external assurance from Deloitte & Touche LLP.
