MYTILINEOS HOLDINGS - SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
2016
3. Materiality analysis of
sustainability issues
The process for identifying and comprehending the Material
sustainability issues, as it is expressed jointly by society
and the Group, is a key practice of the MYTILINEOS Group
operation through which the Group determines and develops
its strategy, its objectives and its social and environmental
initiatives, acting in a responsible manner across the full range
of its activities (on a local, national and international level).
In line with the international best practice on identifying
the material sustainability issues, MYTILINEOS Group has
adopted, since 2014, the relevant methodology of the GRI-G4
Guidelines. This initiative has upgraded the existing corporate
process, leading to a more effective identification of these
issues and their impact, both within and outside the Group.
The following diagram shows the eight most important
sustainability issues, for the year 2016, that reasonably
considered important for reflecting the Group’s economic,
environmental and social impacts, in conjunction with the
extent they substantively influence the assessments and
decisions of the key stakeholder groups in the sectors of the
Group’s business activity.
