Materiality assessment of Kesko's corporate responsibility

The purpose of the materiality assessment of Kesko’s responsibility is to identify the key responsibility aspects for Kesko and its stakeholders. The materiality assessment guides Kesko’s corporate responsibility and stakeholder work and defines activities for meeting stakeholder expectations.

The frame of reference for Kesko’s vision for corporate responsibility and materiality assessment is Kesko’s responsibility programme, megatrends in responsibility, aspects of significance for stakeholders and Kesko’s strategic objectives.

Kesko’s material corporate responsibility aspects are presented in the matrix below, where the vertical axis shows the level of concern for stakeholders and the horizontal axis the current or potential impact on Kesko. The level of concern for stakeholders has been assessed as a whole, which is why the weightings of the various areas by individual stakeholders are not reflected in the matrix.

The materiality assessment was last updated in 2012. In 2013, the material aspects for reporting were defined according to the requirements of the new GRI G4 reporting guidelines. The aspects identified were already included in Kesko’s materiality assessment, and there was no need to update the materiality matrix.
