We used a materiality analysis to determine where our company’s activities have the greatest impact on society, the environment and the economy, and which topics are relevant to our stakeholders. The following eight key topics have emerged, which we focus on in our sustainability roadmap.
Materiality matrix as basis for our eight focus topics
In our materiality matrix, we assessed actual and potential positive and negative impacts of our activities along the value chain. The aspects of scale, scope and likelihood of impacts were taken into account as assessment categories. In addition, we gathered the views and concerns of our key stakeholders – investors, customers, employees and suppliers – online and in person. This materiality matrix provides guidance and focus for the further integration of our sustainability efforts into business activities. It will be reviewed at regular intervals and adjusted if required.
