The evolution of Reporting has taken the Group’s focus outside the strictly financial sphere, embracing a complex communication need: a very current initiative that required all stakeholders to spend a considerable effort. Rewarded not only by the results, but by an uncommon appreciation, expressed by the users involved in the process.
