The purpose of the materiality assessment is to guide a focused approach to sustainability by balancing expectations of different stakeholders with our internal business aspirations and context. This enables us to identify which sustainability topics are most relevant in relation to our business.
Working towards global goals
To identify the Sustainable Development Goals that are most relevant in relation to our activities, we followed an approach specified by the SDG Compass. The SDG Compass is a guide for business action developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the UN Global Compact and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
Innovation and partnerships
We recognize that our sustainability ambitions involve addressing complex and often cross-sector challenges and that we cannot achieve these ambitions working alone. Innovation, collaboration and partnerships are therefore essential elements underpinning our strategy to help us on our sustainability journey.
