Materiality of issues
All of the topics covered in the 25 questions received relevance ratings of high to very high from our stakeholders. Based on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 = very low relevance and 10 = very high relevance, the mean relevance ratings ranged between just below 7 to just over 9 points. The survey also revealed that internal and external stakeholders share the same views regarding the relevance of certain CR issues. Both respondent groups attributed high relevance to the following topics: data protection and security, logistics services that are free from child and forced labor, human rights due diligence, and corporate integrity and compliance. High-relevance topics also include labor-related issues such as the respectful treatment of employees, diversity and equal opportunity as well as training and education.
