Material Topics

Identifying the main effects of our actions and incorporating our stakeholders’ concerns into our strategy forms the basis of our sustainability management. Our materiality analysis in line with the requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is a key tool for systematically prioritizing the wide range of action areas and using resources as effectively as possible. The results also influence the structure of our external reporting on the topic of corporate responsibility.

We performed our last materiality analysis in fiscal year 2017. This was based on the four principles of sustainability context, materiality, completeness, and inclusion of stakeholders. As a result, we defined seven material sustainability topics that were confirmed by the Board of Management and the Corporate Responsibility Committee and also formed the relevant management framework. The topic of good corporate governance forms the basis for all of our business activities. The materiality analysis is based on four principles: sustainability context, materiality, completeness and stakeholder inclusiveness.

Material Topics

Good Corporate Governance

Only appropriate values, operational guidelines and organizational structures – summed up as good corporate governance – enable our employees to act responsibly in their day-to-day work and thus turn a relatively abstract concept into a specific corporate success factor. At LANXESS, good corporate governance is embodied by a values-based and safety-conscious corporate culture, effective management systems and a commitment to internationally recognized principles of responsible management such as the U.N. Global Compact.
