Materiality assessment

In 2021, a Group materiality assessment allowed us to fine-tune our understanding of the sustainability issues and opportunities most material to our key stakeholder groups, and therefore most strategic for our business. Recurring themes from this included: transparency and traceability across the entire value chain; increasing regulations and reporting obligations; biodegradability and waste management; more proactive engagement; and wider collaboration to understand and address the interconnected nature of issues. 

This exercise confirmed that our 2030 strategy and objectives resonate strongly with our stakeholders’ vision. The overwhelming message was a clear recognition of the progress we have made on sustainability, our solid disclosures, and commitment to transparency.
