Materiality Matrix

In 2019 SFS conducted extensive expert interviews and a corresponding analysis with the identified stakeholder groups.

Five material topics identified

The interview structure reflected the 33 sustainable criteria defined by the GRI and grouped into six focus areas. The stakeholders and stakeholder groups consulted were first asked to select the issues among the 33 sustainable criteria that were most relevant to them – with respect to the economic, environmental or social performance of SFS – or, if not applicable, to present their own key issues. In a second step, the issues selected by these stakeholders were weighted according to their impact (low, medium or high). A final consolidation, analysis and prioritization of the results led to themateriality matrix. The current material topics, which SFS reports on below, are shown in the matrix in turquoise (Bubble 1-5).

The direct and continuous dialog with stakeholders forms the basis of the “Inventing Success Together” value proposition that SFS actively pursues inside and outside the company. SFS critically evaluates the relevance of its material topics and their position in the materiality matrix every two years. Extensive interviews with and surveys of the identified stakeholder groups are scheduled to take place again in 2021, and the results of this analysis and any changes to the priorities will be presented in the Sustainability Report 2021.
