Materiality exercise

In 2020 the Group completed a thorough review of the sustainability landscape, including benchmarking the practices of over 50 customer, competitor and peer group companies to inform the development of our 2030 sustainability roadmap.

We used the findings from this review to engage 85 senior leaders to identify which sustainability topics were most important to them, using the SASB materiality map and GRI as a guide.

Further insights were gained through interviews with customers, peers and the investment community (rating agencies, analysts and institutional investors) to understand their perspectives and priorities. We then distilled the internal and external insights into a sub-set of material issues, plotted these onto a matrix (see below) and used them to help define our roadmap.
