We consider material matters to be those topics that have a direct or indirect impact on our ability to create or preserve economic environmental and social value for our organisation, our stakeholders and society at large. Material matters, therefore, include both risks that must be managed as well as opportunities that could be captured to enhance the viability of the business in the short, medium and long term.
Our material matter identification process
We follow a three-step process to determine which matters are most material to the ongoing viability of our business.
To undertake our broader risks and opportunities we consider the context within which we operate
Our business context includes risks and opportunities that rise from within the business
Through the stakeholder engagement process, key concerns are brought to the attention of management and the Board
Once all matters have been identified, these are prioritised and ranked according to the level of influence on our business and relationship with stakeholders.
- GOVERNANCE AND ETHICS
- FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL
