ABOUT THE REPORT Welcome to the Sustainability Report for 2020/2021. Previous Sustainability Reports have been published under the ege Group name, covering four individual carpet brands: Ege Carpets, Hammer Carpets, Bentzon Carpets and Carpet Concept. As from 1 May 2021, this has changed, since the four individual brands have been merged into a single brand under the name of Ege Carpets. As from this year, the Sustainability Report is therefore published under the sole name of Ege Carpets. The report covers the financial year from 1 May 2020 to 30 April 2021 and includes all production units in the Group. The statements of consumption in the report will con- tinue to present the total consumption of each production unit during the financial year. The report is based on our ambitious Sustainability Strategy, which has already been rolled out at two production units. Going forward, this strategy will be rolled out in the rest of the Group, together with the ongoing social responsibility initiatives. Concerning the status of the goals under the Sustainability Strategy, the status present- ed in this year's report is based solely on our continuing product range after the merger and the extensive streamlining of the portfolio of standard products. In this year's report, on determining of the status of the goals under the Sustainability Strategy we discard information that is not related to the new product range. We are aware that this may create some confusion. This report must therefore be viewed as a transitional report in which consumption data is based on actual consumption in the past financial year, while the goals under the Sustainability Strategy are calculated on the basis of the products continued as from 1 May 2021. The report includes our statutory Corporate Social Responsibility Report, cf. Section 99a of the Danish Financial Statements Act. Firm of auditors EY has ensured that the report is in compliance with the Act. The report also serves as our Communication on Progress report for the UN Global Compact. Due to Covid-19, a number of projects and tasks were delayed or postponed. This can be seen from the figures in this year's report. It is also apparent from the number of good CSR stories, which for natural reasons are fewer than usual. The figures in the report have not been verified by a third party. In the long term, we would like all figures to be externally verified. Until then, we emphasise that we devote a lot of internal work to verifying the figures.
