Experian operates on a regional basis, with 15,000 people based in over 40 countries. The regions we define are North America, Latin America, UK and Ireland, Asia Pacific and EMEA, which includes our offices in South Africa. Each region has its own unique focus as well as contributing toward the strategic progress we are making with our CR programme. The reports in this section describe local developments, work with key stakeholders, community developments and plans for the future. The overall plan for the future is to improve the quantitative nature of these reports, enabling the regions to demonstrate their performance to local stakeholders across all of our six key responsibilities.
