The exercise was completed in cooperation with one of our specialized sustainability consultants and involved a series of workshops, interviews, and panel discussions with a diverse range of stakeholders. These interviews included customers, suppliers, investors, employees, leadership, industry associations, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
In addition, each of our Executive Leadership Team members and a member of our Board of Directors with extensive ESG experience were all personally interviewed. The double materiality study also considered many different sources of guidance from regulatory institutions, ESG benchmarks and ratings, sustainability reporting standards, industry peers, and relevant market ESG trend reports.
