Material topics

At the end of 2016, Fugro, in cooperation with an independent sustainability consultant, performed a materiality assessment in order to identify the most relevant sustainability topics for the company and its stakeholders covering economic, environmental and social impacts. Materiality refers to the threshold at which topics become sufficiently relevant to be reported and are therefore important to Fugro’s business and stakeholders.

The assessment started with a long list of topics and eventually the selection process resulted in the nine materials topics as shown in the four upper right quadrants of the materiality matrix.
