Definition of our material sustainability topics
The ORIOR Responsibility, together with its nine fields of activity, is based on a GRI-compliant materiality process, with the help of which we have identified our focal points for sustainable development.
The ORIOR Responsibility’s strategic ambitions are focused on sustainability topics where the Group can make the greatest contributions to sustainable development. Correspondingly, the measures implemented by ORIOR in the area of sustainability aim to reduce any negative impacts of its business activities and strengthen the positive ones.
The following diagram shows at which stages of the value chain the impacts mostly appear. The Group’s sustainability management allows it to anticipate sustainability risks and tackle them proactively to whatever extent possible. We are aware that the significance of sustainability issues can change over time, e.g. due to changing stakeholder interests. For this reason, we regularly review our strategic fields of activity and make adjustments where necessary.
We respond to the expectations of our stakeholder groups because they support us in setting and achieving ambitious goals. As part of our strategy development, we relied on stakeholder mapping to identify our most important stakeholder groups and their concerns regarding sustainability.
We engage in ongoing communication with our employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders by means of personal discussions and meetings. We receive direct feedback from consumers via digital media or indirectly via our customers. We also exchange information with other stakeholders such as associations, public authorities, NGOs, trade unions and banks during personal discussions, at conferences or when involved in cross-sector projects, for example.
