Material topics

voestalpine uses its ongoing communication with internal and external stakeholder groups in order to identify those topics which are important to Corporate Responsibility management and reporting. Prior to compiling the CR Report the Corporate Responsibility manager is tasked with gathering feedback from internal contact persons for sustainability, as well as the heads of the relevant specialist units. They report on the topics that have been raised and discussed with external contacts.

The resulting list of topics regarded by the stakeholder groups as important are supplemented by those which have been identified as the result of collaboration in relevant committees, analysis of the industry media, and by a benchmark analysis of selected competitors, suppliers and customers. The collected information forms the basis upon which the Corporate Responsibility Steering Committee prioritizes the relevant topics according to their materiality. Information about voestalpine’s approach and performance with respect to all the key topics is published in the CR Report. The following topics have been identified as central to this report.

For the first time a short online survey is planned for the current business year in order to determine stakeholder opinions on specific issues and the perceived relevance of various topics.
