The materiality matrix shows the positioning of the issues with respect to both the importance and priority given by stakeholders in our stakeholder engagement processes, and the level of priority for the Group, intended also as financial or reputational impact on the Bank.
The topics with high value on both sides of the matrix are those on which the Group has mainly focused its attention in 2017, for which the Consolidated Non-Financial Statement reports detailed correlated topics, management methods, significant indicators and relations with progress of the Business Plan. Relations with suppliers and the community do not qualify as material issues, but Intesa Sanpaolo recognises their high social and environmental value and therefore provides detailed disclosures on the website and, as regards the Community, in single-issue papers.
The analisys of "material" issues in the wider context of sustainability
In order to highlight how Group’s activities affect on the social, economic and environmental conditions of the local, regional and global environment in which it operates, a concentric shape is presented, that shows the seven macrothemes "material" in relation to:
risks and opportunities for each theme that might have transversal impacts on strategies and on Intesa Sanpaolo business in the medium and long term;
positive impacts that could generate shared value in the long term that for the Group, the environment and society in general.
