Scope and external audit of the extra-financial information


The scope of the independently reviewed extra-financial information in this report is based on the G4 Guidelines with the Comprehensive option and the Financial Services Sector Supplement of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). These guidelines include a set of principles and indicators designed to define the scope and coverage of extra-financial reporting, while ensuring the quality of the information provided. Furthermore, the Report has been prepared taking into consideration compliance with the principles laid down in the AA1000 APS (2008) standard issued by Accountability.

In the preparation of this report, Bankia called on the services of an independent expert to carry out an exhaustive materiality analysis for the purposes of carrying out various stakeholder consultations and identifying the most relevant matters that must be covered in this report. The GRI G4 Content Index is provided hereon.

During the entire process of compiling and presenting information, Bankia adheres to the principles of balance, comparability, accuracy, timeliness, clarity and reliability required to ensure the quality of the information presented in this report. The work was performed by an external assurance provider (Ernst & Young); the same firm responsible for auditing the consolidated financial statements. The Audit and Compliance Committee is responsible for assuring the external assurance provider’s independence.

The information reviewed covers the financial activities performed by the Bankia Group. Any indicators with a different scope are specified in the GRI indicators table. Where required for clarification purposes, the methods used to calculate the data and estimates applied, are explained in the relevant tables or chapters of the report to make them easier to understand.
