69. What are our conclusions? Based on the work undertaken we conclude that: the information in the sections 'Integrity', 'Supply-chain responsibility', 'Alcohol and society', 'Alcohol and work' and 'Reporting process' as specified under 'scope' above is fairly stated; the 2004 and 2005 performance data and trend explanation for the key performance indicators in the sections: 'Environmental performance' and 'Safety' (thermal energy and electricity consumption, and related C02 emissions, water consumption, non-recycled industrial waste, and accident frequency) are fairly stated. What else did we observe? Without affecting the conclusions presented above, we would like to draw readers' attention to the following: Since publishing the Sustainability Report 2002-2003 Heineken has further developed the environmental and safety data reporting system for the production locations into a structured data management system. A key area for attention is the further improvement of the data quality and internal controls related to safety information. We support the further integration of safety, health and environmental performance results into business management processes under the Heineken World Class Manufacturing programme. In the social area Heineken has further developed their focus and the development of performance indicators to track the status of the local transposition of the Code of Conduct, roll-out of the Whistle Blowing procedure, and issues related to alcohol. Key areas for attention are improving the quality of the data collection process in the social area, and the further integration of social aspects into the business processes. We provide our detailed observations and areas for improvement in a separate report to Heineken management. /Z KPMG Sustainability B.V. Prof. dr.
