Analysis of material topics

Focus on the essential forms the compass for our sustainability management. Stakeholder interests and the impact of our business activities serve us as cornerstones.

Procedure

In 2020 we carried out a comprehensive materiality analysis. The aim was to identify the sustainability topics relevant for the company and its stakeholders in order to align sustainability management accordingly and to set priorities. As a result, 21 material topics for the Dürr Group were identified with the involvement of various internal stakeholders.

Business and stakeholder relevance

In dialog with different departments, through interviews with managers and in the context of a management workshop, we then discussed the business relevance of the material topics. Furthermore, we analyzed the materiality of the topics from the perspective of selected stakeholders.

  • Investor Relations, on behalf of the capital market
  • Sales, on behalf of our customers
  • Employees, representative cross-section of our staff

In the next step, we plan to conduct a comprehensive direct survey of external stakeholders, such as customers and investors, in order to incorporate this perspective on the Dürr Group to an even greater extent.

Impact on economy, environment and society (ESG)

Apart from the topic analysis, we also assessed the economic, environmental, and social impacts of our business activities and had them validated by external sustainability experts. It showed that by far the greatest impact results from our products and systems.

Results of the materiality analysis

At the end of the process, the 21 material topics were clustered into five areas. These now form our five fields of action—for the orientation of sustainability management and for the structure of this sustainability report. We have visualized the fields of action in the form of a leaf in order to enhance the recognition value for stakeholders. Selected products that make a special contribution to sustainability are also to be equipped with this in the future.
