Methodological framework

Now in its fourth edition, the Sustainability Report published by the AC Milan Group (also referred to hereinafter as the “Group” or “Club”) sets out the main social, economic and environmental effects brought about by the Group’s activities in the 2015/2016 season (1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016).

The report adheres to the GRI’s G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (2013) and G4 Event Organizers Sector Disclosures (2014), in accordance with the Core option.

All economic information refers to the 2015 financial year and the scope of economic reporting is the same as that found in the Group’s Consolidated Financial Statement.

For the purposes of the Sustainability Report, M-I Stadio S.r.l. has been fully taken into account (values to 100%) as regards qualitative information and quantitative data referring to social and environmental factors; in contrast, it is not included in the scope of reporting for data relating to the workforce.

As regards the economic data, the Club owns 50% of M-I Stadio S.r.l. according to the equity method, as per the Group’s Consolidated Financial Statement.

Data and information relating to previous seasons are shown in the interests of comparison, in order to allow stakeholders to evaluate the progress of activities over time.

There were no significant changes to the ownership structure and dimensions of the organisation last season.

The Report is published annually on the AC Milan Group website (https://www.acmilan.com/en/club/sustainability-report).

To make it easier for readers to consult the report, we have chosen to adopt the clearest language possible and present the data using images, graphics and tables. To coincide with this objective, the document has been exclusively published online for the first time and includes a series of interactive features.
