Materiality analysisHow we recognise our true sustainable potential
Which of the many sustainable topics are the most relevant for EVVA? Where can we apply effective levers to promote sustainable development in particular? The materiality analysis is intended to find out exactly this – it is the heart of GRI reporting. The objectives result primarily from this materiality matrix.
The materiality matrix presents the results of the 2020 qualitative stakeholder dialogue.<br/> The topics to the right of the curve have the highest ratings in terms of relevance and/or impact. They are the ones that have been defined as the most important for EVVA. The information provided by the participating employees, trade partners, suppliers and research institutions flows into the matrix. How did EVVA develop this materiality matrix? All details can be found in the GRI index (points 102-46 and 102-47).
The following table shows the relevant results of the 2020 quantitative employee survey. The impact question, which calls for intensive discussion, was not asked in this quantitative survey.
The interesting finding: The main topics cover a wide range of areas. In the stakeholder dialogue, only a few points such as "innovation", "materials" and above all "proportion of regional suppliers" were reported as being more important than in the employee survey.
The highest scores of the two now give rise to the following key issues. They reflect EVVA’s significant economic, environmental or social impact on stakeholders. The links will take you directly to the management approach, objectives and actions for each topic:
- Strategy & economic development
- Employee satisfaction
- Customer satisfaction
- Proportion of regional suppliers
In addition to these key topics, EVVA is also dedicated to many other sustainable aspects and initiatives. You can find the complete overview under Our projects.
