Our Sustainability Strategy
Ensuring that our sustainability vision is aligned with our business strategy is a fundamental step towards achieving our goals. Carrying out a materiality assessment is a way to identify, understand and prioritize the topics that influence our business, the issues of importance to our stakeholders and where we can add value. The assessment also helps us determine the data we should collect, analyse and act upon. The materiality assessment is a guide to help us refine our strategy and reporting approach, ensuring we meet the needs of our stakeholders.
In 2019, we performed a materiality assessment consulting with a range of internal and external stakeholders to explore a variety of topics and understand their business priority. We also looked at the perceived urgency of different issues to our internal and external stakeholders. Our analysis shortlisted a list of nine topics as shown in our matrix below.
To further refine our list of topics and the focus of our activity, we worked together with our parent company SHV to distil the list to three core areas of activity:
- Create a futureproof and diverse workforce
- Have a safe and healthy working environment
- Reduce our carbon footprint
