The quantitative and qualitative data presented in the report come from the internal management information systems of the Agora Group and Agora S.A., which constitute the process of reporting and data validation with the participation of internal experts. In the case of selected figures, there is incomplete comparability with the previous years. This is due to the development of ESG reporting in the Agora Group, enriching the report for 2021 with new indicators and changing the methodology of calculating selected indicators. Each time such situations are clearly described in tables with data. In particular, changes in the methodology concern indicators in the employee area: from 2021, data is collected in a more detailed breakdown (into age groups and grades of employees) and there have been changes in the assignment of some positions to individual grades in the employment structure. Changes in the methodology of environmental data are mainly related to the wider scope of data collection and the adaptation to the new GRI standard on waste.
