Materiality assessment

Our work focuses on those CSR topics and activities that are most important, or material, to our business. Looking at materiality is an ongoing process at Stockmann. During the years 2012 – 2014 Stockmann defined its material sustainability aspects for reporting according to the requirements in the GRI G4 reporting guidelines. 31 material aspects were identified and then categorized under five CSR themes: customers, employees, products, environment, finance & governance.

During the preparation of the Stockmann CSR strategy 2016-2018, the CSR themes were revisited, re-evaluated and updated where needed.

To address the aspects specific to its business, Lindex engages in a continuous materiality assessment of its own, to gain insight from its stakeholders and to complement the Group materiality assessment.
