voestalpine uses its ongoing communications with internal and external stakeholder groups to identify those topics that are key to Corporate Responsibility Management and the relevant reporting.

A list of the topics considered most important by the stakeholders is drawn up prior to the preparation of the annual CR Report and supplemented by those topics that have been identified as part of the company’s work in relevant bodies, through analyses of trade publications, and based on a benchmark analysis of select competitors, suppliers, and customers.

In a next analytic step undertaken by the Corporate Responsibility Steering Committee and the CR Manager, all topics in regard to which voestalpine’s business activities actually or potentially trigger positive or negative effects are classified as material. Information on voestalpine’s approach and performance with respect to all material topics is published in the CR Report. The following topics were identified as central to the present Report:
