We defined the responsibility priorities most material to our strategy and operations for the first time in 2011. In 2014, we implemented the GRI reporting guidelines and conducted a more comprehensive materiality analysis. The latest comprehensive materiality analysis was completed in 2019 when our sustainability themes and objectives were also renewed.
In the materiality analysis, we have identified the company’s significant corporate sustainability perspectives and analysed them on the basis of industry and background analyses, key stakeholder interviews and surveys and an assessment of business impacts.
Our external stakeholders assessed that Sponda’s key sustainability themes include customer focus, personnel wellbeing and competence, responsibility for the subcontracting chain, adapting to climate change and its mitigation, healthy and safe premises as well as sustainable and transparent business.
Stages of the materiality analysis
1. Identifying the material aspects of Sponda’s corporate sustainability in the value chain.
2. Prioritising the material aspects in co-operation with significant stakeholders.
3. Impacts of the material aspects on Sponda’s operations.
