In formulating our strategic priorities, we consider the full range of topics or aspects that have the potential to impact our ability to create sustainable value. These aspects are analysed from two perspectives, namely, importance to our stakeholders, and importance to DBB. An aspect is important (material) if it is both relevant and significant. Significance takes into account the magnitude of the impact as well the probability of its occurrence.
We have identified the aspects that are of importance to stakeholders and of importance to DBB in the context of our economic, environmental and social agenda for sustainable value creation. To aid analysis and focus, these aspects have been mapped in a two-dimensional materiality matrix shown below. We have used GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines in this process.

The Management Discussion and Analysis that follows explains why we consider an aspect to be material, what we do to manage them and how we evaluate our approach and results. They are elaborated further with supporting indicators and measures where applicable.
