What is a material topic?

Put simply, material topics are those which are most significant and relevant for our business and our stakeholders. We mapped the identified material topics against our value creation goals and our four key movements: Better homes, Better lives, Better planet and Better company.

In our assessment, we consider two questions - could our business impact people or the planet in relation to the topic? Could the topic impact on the financial performance of our business? If the answer is yes to either question, we know it’s a material topic.
