In 2019 Fugro undertook a full review of its materiality assessment to ensure alignment of our material topics with global trends and developments and our Path to Profitable Growth strategy. The materiality assessment focuses on those topics that are most relevant or impactful for both the company and its stakeholders, covering social, environmental and compliance related topics.
Working from a long list of topics, a shortlist was created for further discussions with internal and external stakeholders to assess their views on Fugro’s impact and to find out which subjects are important for our stakeholders. The outcome is the materiality matrix presented below.
The review of our material topics has created further focus on the objectives and related programs aligned with global trends and our strategic objectives as is shown in the sustainability framework below. This will also drive further standardisation of data collection and participation in global rankings and benchmarks.
