Materiality Assessment
The Materiality Assessment is a stakeholder engagement exercise designed to gauge the Group’s most noteworthy economic, environmental and social impacts that are of importance to its stakeholders. This process helped us identify and prioritise key matters according to its impact on business activities and its importance to our stakeholders’ perspectives.

We engaged a broad cross section of our customers, suppliers, employees, community as well as government stakeholders in this exercise to ensure we have a wide range of diverse feedback on sustainability matters that are important to us. This was conducted via a survey. The material matter assessment was completed by end of Quarter 4 FYE 2020.
MATERIALITY ASSESSMENT PROCESS
IDENTIFY POTENTIAL ISSUES
  • Identified and compiled a list of significant areas of the Group’s operations.
  • Materiality assessment process was conducted to gather the feedback from stakeholders through electronic surveys as well as physical survey.
PRIORITISE ISSUES
  • Develop the materiality matrix based on the scores of the survey which help to isolate, rank and prioritise our sustainability key matters.
SENIOR MANAGEMENT VALIDATION
  • The sustainability material matrix was reviewed by the senior management, deliberated and agreed upon.
The materiality matrix below represents the outcome of the Group’s materiality assessment exercise. Sustainability key matters have been rated on a scale of low, medium and high. To prioritize each key matter, we used a scale of 0% to 40% as low priority and 75% to 100% as high priority. There were 18 sustainability matters shown in the materiality matrix according to the ranking provided by our stakeholders. The material matters are selected to emphasize all 3 Sustainability Pillars namely Economic, Environmental and Social Impact.

We have selected 9 key material matters based on the rankings explained above to focus our efforts and to set targets for the year 2021 and beyond.
