Material Issues

We undertake materiality assessments to determine what we should focus on in our sustainability agenda. The assessment involves:

  • identifying current environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that we can help to manage and mitigate;
  • prioritising these issues; and
  • validating their relevance with our Sustainability Development Committee and the Board.

To help prioritise our material issues, we plot them on a matrix that indicates how important they are to our business, as well as to our stakeholders. During 2020, F&N Group conducted a robust materiality assessment and stakeholder engagement to evaluate our most important sustainability issues. This assessment was based on three steps: Identification, Prioritisation and Validation.
