GRI Index Table - compliance table to GRI G3 guidelines The 2012 SKF Annual Report - financial, environmental and

social performance covers the reporting period January to December 2012. Since 2000, SKF has adopted the Global Reporting Initiatives reporting guidelines in its sustainability reporting. This Report is of no exception and is based on the G3 Guidelines where SKF reports on all Profile Disclosures, Management Approach, relevant Core Performance Indicators and Additional Indicators.

As part of the report content definition and the reflection of its materiality, all reporting indicators have been carefully evaluated and those that are considered of significant materiality in relation to SKF's economic, environmental and social impact, as well as its sustainability performance, are included in this fully integrated annual report. Other indicator explanations, where the statistics compilations deviate from the indicator protocol specified, or that are considered to be of less material value to SKFs reporting, are provided in the G3 Index table below. These are marked with N/A, adjacent to the indicators and the comments given. The principle of ensuring qualitative reporting in terms of accuracy, comparability, clarity, timeliness, balance, and reliability, is highly valued by SKF. To live up to this principle, SKF has been submitting its Reports for third party verification for more than 10 years. The SKF Annual Report - financial, environmental and social performance was subject to a limited assurance, in accordance with FAR (the institute for the accounting profession in Sweden) recommendation RevR 6 Assurance of sustainability reports and the international ISAE 3000 assurance engagement standard of sustainability reporting. The Report on the review on the Annual Report is on page 176-177 in the SKF Annual Report - financial, environmental and social performance . With reference to the GRI G3 Application Level Criteria, the 2012 Annual Report is self-declared to having fulfilled the A+ application level, which is confirmed by our external auditors KPMG.
