The preceding section constitutes the relevant mandatory disclosures according to Sections 289 (3) and 315 (3) of the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the combined corporate non-financial statement for fiscal 2018. The information applies to both the Continental Corporation and Continental AG, and is identical unless otherwise indicated. In accordance with Sections 315b and 315c in conjunction with Sections 289b to 289e HGB, the combined corporate non-financial statement presents the main information that is required in order to understand the business development, business performance and position, and the effects of business operations on non-financial aspects. There are no additional reportable risks in accordance with HGB besides those presented in the Report on Risks and Opportunities. The business model is explained in the Corporate Profile section. As a framework for the descriptions in the combined corporate non-financial statement, for some key figures the company used not only HGB and IFRS, but also GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) and Greenhouse Gas Protocol requirements.
