As we grow and evolve our business, we recognise the need to ensure that our activities are meeting the needs and expectations of our stakeholders.
To support this, we commissioned a third-party agency to conduct an ESG materiality assessment. The aim is to help us to identify and prioritise the ESG issues that are most relevant and material for the business and our stakeholders.
This process followed a robust and recognised approach. We canvassed opinion among our stakeholders’ views on the materiality of a range of ESG issues. We engaged with our employees, customers and investors using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, including interviews and surveys.
Using the insights gained, we created a materiality matrix which can be seen below. This matrix provides the foundation to develop a strategy for sustainability, focusing on those issues where we can have the greatest impact, with our commitment to health and safety to the fore.
