Materiality

Clas Ohlson works according to a well-defined process for analysing, prioritising and validating our most important sustainability issues.

The materiality process – the five stages described in the diagram – provides year-by-year comparison of how the significance of these issues changes.

We gain understanding of how we create value for our stakeholders by involving internal and external representatives. ­is also helps us better analyse the impact of sustainability issues on how we manage risk and pursue business opportunities.

Supported by the Board

­The outcome of the analysis is supported by senior management and the Board and is integrated into the business strategy. In-depth interviews with key stakeholders provided greater insight into the contribution of the sustainability work to the development of Clas Ohlson.
