Materiality assessment Step

In order to identify the most important sustainability issues related to its activity, the Company follows a specific procedure, which is based on international standards and guidelines regarding the evaluation and prioritisation of these issues. The standards for the analysis and evaluation of these material and prioritised issues are the GRI Standards and AA1000.

During 2019, the Company’s material issues were updated through an online questionnaire, taking into account the results of the 2018 stakeholder survey, in which both internal and external stakeholders participated. The results of the survey are considered particularly important because they are taken into account when deciding on the strategy and planning actions that will promote Sustainability.

Taking into account and integrating in the evaluation of the issues the new trends at sectoral and global level, in 2019 a new prioritisation and grouping of the “most material” issues took place.
