Material aspects

During the preparation of this CR Report, voestalpine identified topics in connection with sustainability reporting that are of particular importance for the company. Various sources of information were consulted and subsequently, the topics were ranked in importance.

The most important basic principle for the collection of important topics was ongoing dialogue with stakeholders. The Corporate Responsibility manager collected responses from internal contact persons for sustainability and from the heads of relevant specialist units (Sales, Legal, Research, etc.) not only across divisions but also across regions. They reported which topics and aspects had been addressed and discussed by and with their external contacts.

The resulting long list of important topics for stakeholders was supplemented by those subjects that have been identified during collaboration in relevant committees and bodies, through analysis of trade publications, and by way of a benchmark analysis of selected competitors, suppliers, and customers. Finally, the relevance for internal and external stakeholders was discussed.

The following topics were identified as “material aspects” for voestalpine’s sustainability performance:
