Materiality analysis

GRI 102-46 GRI 102-47

Grupo Nutresa continuously strives to be a people-centered organization. That is why it fosters diverse capabilities that enable its employees to perform an optimal management of the matters related to its stakeholders.

With the purpose of identifying the sustainability trends that might have a major impact on the Organization’s ability to generate value in the short, medium and long term, Grupo Nutresa has been conducting its materiality analysis since 2011.

For this process, the Company considers the opinions and priorities of its most relevant stakeholders, as well as the global risks and the emerging issues from the food, restaurants and omni-channel company sectors. Additionally, the Organization performs benchmarking exercises with international peers from the industry, and considers assessment criteria established by different sustainability monitors and rankings.

The materiality matrix was updated in 2013 and 2015, and its scope was expanded in 2017 and 2018. During the last analysis, 23 relevant topics were identified, 18 of which were classified as high-impact or material topics. For said classification, the following aspects were assessed:

  • Impact on the Organization: based on the strategy, the strategic goals for 2020, the corporate risks and the business differentiators, among others.
  • Importance for the stakeholders: based on discussion sessions, surveys and interviews conducted with the stakeholders in eight countries: Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, United States, Mexico, Panama, Peru and the Dominican Republic.
