3 2 Introduction The 2014 annual report and this accompanying GRI index on the business year 2014 of the Arbonia Forster Group AG contain a sustainability report which, for the first time, is based on the G4 guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the "Core" Option. The following GRI index either references corresponding page numbers in the AFG 2014 annual report or itself contains relevant information. This concerns the general GRI standard data (G1-1 to G4-56) and the specific GRI standard data with the management approaches and performance indicators on material aspects in the spheres of Economy (EC), Environment (EN), Labour practices (LA), Human rights (HR), Society (SO) and product responsibility (PR).

G4-6 Countries where there is business activity See annual report, first inside page and page 112 G4-7 Ownership structure and legal form AFG Arbonia-Forster-Holding AG is a public limited company (PLC) in accordance with Swiss law. G4-8 Markets served See annual report: Building technology, page 70 Building envelope, page 81 Building safety, page 91 G4-9 Information about the size of the organisation See overview of the most important figures in the annual report, first inside page. G4-10 Workforce by type of employment, work contract, region and sex The workforce on 31/12/2014 consisted of 5,785 full time equivalents or 5,937 persons. 77% of these were men and 23% women. Around 66% were working in the industrial sphere ("blue collar"), 32% in the management and service sphere ("white collar") and 2% were trainees. For the workforce, in an annual average, as well as by divisions, see annual report page 129.

5 4 G4-11 Employees with collective agreements This information will be collected for the business year G4-12 Description of the company supply chain AFG is supplied with raw materials, auxiliary and operating materials by more than 2000 suppliers. 60% of the suppliers are from Europe, almost 40% from Switzerland and only 0.2% from the APAC region. See also annual report, sustainability in procurement strategy secure and clean supply chains, page 21. G4-13 Substantive changes in the size, structure or ownership relations With retroactive effect as of 1 January, AFG sold its kitchen business to Alno, a leading German kitchen manufacturer. In the second half of the year, AFG completed its acquisition of the STI Group. With its acquisition of the Italian company Sabiana in mid-2014, AFG built up its system competence in the sphere of heating and extended it in the areas of ventilation and climate control. The 2014 sustainability indicators relate to the continuing businesses. See also annual report, 3. consolidation sphere, page 114. G4-14 Precautionary principle See annual report: Sustainability through environmental management systems Standards as the basis for success, page 21 Information and monitoring instruments in relation to the business management, page 42 G4-15 External agreements and initiatives See annual report, participation in the Carbon Disclosure Project AFG CO2Management, page 20 G4-16 Memberships in associations and organisations AFG companies are members in various national associations. An overview of the memberships can be found on the website in the Partner section. 3 Established material aspects and boundaries G4-17 Reporting boundaries in the consolidated annual accounts The annual report reporting boundaries relate to the entire organisation. If only one part of the company is meant as an example or because of data availability, this will be indicated. The newly collected metrics in relation to environment and safety relate to the producing units and the Corporate Center (15 sites) of AFG Holding. Pure sales subsidiaries are not included in the sphere of consolidation of the environmental metrics. G4-18 Definition of the report content This report is based for the first time on the GRI G4 guidelines. AFG has aligned itself with the reporting option "Core" and has used the GRI guidelines on the "Definition of material aspects and boundaries". For an in-depth assessment of the materiality of the various sustainability topics, dialogue with the interest groups was specially sought out. Critical remarks on AFG, as found for example in the "Community analysis 2013" from St. Gallen College, were also taken into account in the selection of material aspects (additional information at see also annual report, The Materiality Matrix, page 17.

6 The interest groups and claims with regard to products, production sites and supply chains will also be taken into account. For example, within the framework of the ISO certifications at the sites, regular assessments of key suppliers are carried out. Environmental and employee elements are taken into account in this process. Claims are accepted through processes with authorities, employee discussions and monitoring audits. Intensive contacts are maintained with customers. This ensures that all topics that are relevant for AFG are addressed. For the reporting year a "Materiality Matrix" was drawn up for the first time, in which the various measure fields of the sustainability program were evaluated with regard to their significance for the company's development and the various stakeholders of AFG. This assessment and thus the assignment in the quadrants of the Materiality Matrix were done on the basis of internal and external discussions, workshops and existing documents. This was supplemented with information acquired for relevance assessment from external sources such as reports and market studies. Through open dialogue and feedback on the sustainability report, in 2015 a follow-up evaluation on the topic relevance should take place. The results of this first materiality analysis are shown in G4-19. They form the basis for the reporting on material GRI aspects. G4-19 Material aspects 5 The significance and thus the assessment of the various measures are very different depending on the interest group. This is discussed in more detail in what follows. a) Economic sustainability - Sustainability in business planning - Increasing resource efficiency According to the assessment carried out, measure 1 has high relevance for AFG. Resource-efficient production saves money in the short term and secures the future capability of the company over the long term. It is therefore also important for shareholders and employees. The sustainability report open, transparent communication Although measure 2 has increasing relevance for the shareholder and company interest groups, currently it is still of low importance, as it is for AFG. A sustainability report serves as an orientation and reputation aid. Participation in the Carbon Disclosure Project AFG CO2Management Measure 3 will be used in future by the shareholders interest group for purposes of orientation. It is not yet a relevant criterion. In the identification and implementation of "Carbon Management" measures, however, the topic is relevant to AFG. b) Environmental sustainability Sustainability in R & D innovative products Measure 4 is important for AFG itself but is of only moderate significance for the customer interest group. Without future-oriented products, the business success aimed for cannot be achieved. Labelling the products with sustainability labels creates differentiation. Sustainability through environmental management systems Standards as the basis for success Measure 5 has balanced importance for internal and external representatives. The topic is relevant for authorities, society (neighbourhood) and the employees. Sustainability in procurement strategy secure and clean supply chains Because of the supplier structure and the materials used, measure 6 is only of limited relevance for external interest groups and the company. Its effect is primarily on suppliers and transporters.

7 6 c) Social sustainability Health & Safety in business planning healthy work at the highest level Measure 7 focuses on administrative, organisational and motivational areas. Implementation is aimed at influencing health and safety behaviour in work and leisure. The employees should be able to unfold their full potential healthily and safely. It is thus extremely relevant for AFG. Sustainability through employee protection Standards give security The content of measure 8 mainly relates to technical employee protection in the workplace. It is therefore also an external effect and has relevance for authorities (compliance with technical regulations and employee protection provisions). The employees can be sure of safe machines; the relevance for AFG is comparable with that of environmental management. Sense of social responsibility from AFG workplaces to the world Measure 9 has a direct and indirect effect on society through planned activities. In future, a variety of activities should respond to the claims of society. Currently it is still of moderate significance for external interest groups. For AFG the commitment should only pay off over the long term; the significance for 2014 could therefore be classified as rather small. The Materiality Matrix shows the relevance of the nine measures of the "AFG sustainability program 2020" in relation to the external interest groups and AFG itself.

In this, measure 1 and measure 7 are of special significance and are measured via the reduction in CO2 emissions or the reduction in the accident rate.

8 7 G4-20/21 Material aspects and reporting boundaries inside and outside the organisation With regard to the GRI guidelines, the aspects shown in the following table have been identified as material. These GRI aspects, defined as material, relate to different internal areas and external actors. The table also evaluates which areas and actors are mainly covered in this report. This defines the reporting limits. This assessment will be updated in 2015, the selection of aspects being adjusted if necessary.

This is the first AFG report in accordance with GRI. If, in individual cases, a new representation, calculation method or optimised data collection has led to different results for the previous years, this will be noted as a restatement for the particular indicator. G4-23 Changes in the reporting bases compared to previous years The reporting for business year 2014 is, for the first time, based on the G4 version of the GRI guidelines. 4 Integration of stakeholders G4-24 Relevant stakeholder groups For AFG, essential stakeholders are: customers, shareholders, employees, suppliers, authorities/state and society.

9 8 G4-25 Basis for the selection of stakeholders The interest groups mentioned in G4-24 have been identified as important, as they meet one of two criteria: either the interest group strongly influences the economic, environmental or social performance of AFG and/or the interest group is strongly affected by the economic, environmental or social performance of AFG. G4-26 Approaches to including stakeholders For the general approach, see G4-18. Shareholders: for participation rights of shareholders, see annual report, 6 PARTICIPATION RIGHTS OF THE SHARE- HOLDERS, page 48 Customers: Intensive contacts via sales force, customer polls, customer events Employees: annual employee discussion, performance process Suppliers: Regular assessments of key suppliers within the framework of the ISO certifications, regular discussions by purchasers with suppliers on site Authorities/state; legal oversight, monitoring audit Society: "Community analysis 2013" of St. Gallen College, media interactions G4-27 Dealing with stakeholders' questions and concerns For the general approach, see G4-18.

10 9 G4-29 Publication of the last report The annual report for business year 2013 was published in March A detailed sustainability report was drawn up for the first time for the annual report for business year G4-30 Reporting cycle Annually in the context of the annual report and the accompanying online reporting (GRI Index). G4-31 Contact person for questions on the report and its content See Introduction, page 3. G4-32 Selected report option Reporting is based on the GRI G4 reporting option "Core". G4-33 External auditing of the report There is an external audit of the sustainability reporting for the following partial areas (see PWC audit report dated 30/03/2015 on page 19 of this document): The AFG sustainability indicators, energy consumption, Scope 1 & 2 of CO 2 emissions, waste, wastewater amounts and accident rates. The management and reporting process for the collection and consolidation of the sustainability indicators and the monitoring environment in the aggregation sphere of these metrics. Individual processes, results and indicators will continued to be checked externally in a targeted way: The financial reporting is audited by an external auditor, see annual report, page 66. The reporting in relation to the energy and greenhouse gas performance will be submitted to the Carbon Disclosure Project and checked and assessed within the framework of the usual assessment. Within the framework of the implemented management systems, see annual report, Sustainability through environmental management systems Standards as the basis for success, page 21, processes will be audited periodically. 6 Governance G4-34 Management structure, committees below the board of directors See annual report: Corporate group structure, page 13 Internal organisation (board of directors), page 36 7 Ethics and integrity G4-56 Guiding principles and code of conduct The Code of Conduct establishes principles for the global activity of all employees of AFG Arbonia-Forster-Holding AG and its subsidiaries.

AFG guarantees that customers can have confidence in the products of AFG because of their reliability, quality and performance. All AFG products must meet legally defined national and international standards as well as the internal quality assurance directives. G4-PR1 Health and safety effects throughout the product lifecycle In general, AFG products and services exhibit low health and safety risks for customers. AFG pursues a preventive approach in the context of comprehensive quality planning, in order to test and ensure the health and safety requirements of all products from development via the certification, manufacture and storage through application and disposal. Corresponding requirements are included in the quality and environment management systems.

18 The product labels cover the legal requirements. See also annual report, Sustainability in R&D - Development in accordance with Eco-Design criteria, product certifications in accordance with EPD and Minergy, page 20 and sustainability through environmental management systems - Standards as the basis for success, page Labelling of products and services (PR) Labelling of products and services management approach At the Business Unit action level, an efficient organisation, unified corporate group standards and the integration of sustainability aspects into business planning ensure reliable implementation and the achievement of objectives. And, above all, to achieve visible benefits for customers, the program also applies at the product level. The products of the AFG companies are developed according to sustainability criteria and identified with labels. This articulates even more strongly the sustainability contribution and thus the added value of the products as well as the associated services. G4-PR3 Labelling of products For partial information, see also annual report, Sustainability in R&D - Development in accordance with Eco-Design criteria, product certifications in accordance with EPD and Minergy, page 20 and at

20 19 Independent auditor's report on AFG's sustainability reporting 2014 To the business management of AFG Arbonia-Forster-Group, Arbon ('AFG'). We were commissioned to audit the sustainability indicators in connection with AFG's 2014 sustainability reporting and their consolidated subsidiaries. Scope and object of the audit Our business auditing designed to achieve a limited assurance therefore focused on data and information in the sustainability report 2014 on the AFG for the business year ended on 31 December 2014: a) The AFG sustainability indicators (energy consumption, Scope 1 & 2 of CO2 emissions, waste, wastewater amounts and accident rates) on page 18 of the AFG GRI-Index b) The management and reporting process for the collection and consolidation of the sustainability indicators and the monitoring environment in the aggregation sphere of these metrics. Criteria The criteria used by AFG are described in the internal reporting guidelines and define those processes through which sustainability indicators are collected, processed and consolidated internally. The precision and completeness of data in the sphere of sustainability are subjected to inherent existing limits, which result from the type and manner of the data collection, calculation and estimation. Furthermore, the quantification of the CO2 emissions is limited due to incomplete scientific methods regarding emission factors and the associated values for associated emissions for various gases. Our audit report should therefore be read in connection with the AFG guidelines and processes as well as the definitions in relation to internal sustainability reporting. Responsibility of the business management AFG business management is responsible for the subject of the auditing and the criteria as well as the selection, preparation and representation of the information selected in harmony with the criteria. It is our responsibility to perform a business audit to achieve limited assurance and, on the basis of our audit, to offer an independent conclusion about the object of the audit. Independence and quality control In carrying out the commission, we have also complied with the regulations relating to independence and ethics of the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants, published by the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants. This code is based on the principles of integrity, objectivity, professional competence and behaviour, confidentiality and the obligation to act with due diligence. PricewaterhouseCoopers implements the International Standard on Quality Control 1 and, in keeping with this, maintains a comprehensive quality control system including written guidelines and processes relating to compliance with ethical standards, professional behavioural requirements and the applicable legal and regulatory provisions. Responsibility of the auditor We have conducted our audit in keeping with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE 3000) Assurance engagements other than audits or reviews of historical financial information and for greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the 'International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3410, Assurance Engagements on Greenhouse Gas Statements', published by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board. In accordance with this standard, we must comply with the professional conduct requirements and must plan and carry out our auditing actions to achieve a limited assurance about the selected AFG sustainability indicators in all essential matters. In a business audit to achieve a limited assurance, the audit actions carried out are less comprehensive compared to those in a business audit designed to achieve a sufficient degree of assurance, so that, accordingly, a lower degree of assurance is achieved. Summary of the work carried out In essence, we have carried out the following work: Polls Polling of people who are responsible for the collection and processing of data for the sustainability indicators in the AFG sites in Switzerland and Germany. Assessment of the metrics Sample checking of the AFG sustainability indicators (energy consumption, Scope 1 & 2 of the CO2 emissions, waste, wastewater amounts and accident rates) in relation to reasonableness, consistency, correctness and completeness. Review of the documentation and analysis of relevant basic documents Review of the relevant documentation on a sample-testing basis, the management and reporting structures and the existing sustainability reporting documents. Assessment of the processes and data consolidation Review of the processes for collection and processing of the sustainability indicators with regard to their fitness for purpose as well as assessment of the consolidation procedure at the company level. Conclusion Based on the work steps described in this report, we did not encounter circumstances that would force us to conclude that the AFG sustainability indicators, as defined above in the Scope and Object of the Audit section, were not appropriately prepared and published in all material aspects correspond in accordance with the internal AFG guidelines and procedures.
