We compared the CSR Information presented in the Management Report with the list provided in Article R. 225-105-1 of the French Commercial Code. For any consolidated information that was not disclosed, we verified that the explanations provided complied with the provisions of Article R. 225-105, paragraph 3 of the French Commercial Code. We ensured that the CSR Information covered the scope of consolidation, i.e. the Company, its subsidiaries as defined by Article L. 233-1 and the entities it controls as defined by Article L. 233-3 of the French Commercial Code within the limitations set out in the methodological information presented in the “Approach and methodology” section of the Management Report.
