Starting from FY 2017, Cattolica has identified the so called “material aspects” defined by the reporting guidelines for the Sustainability Report, provided by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). These aspects are particularly important from the social, environmental and economic point of view and are a priority for internal and external stakeholders, with respect to the business activity and strategy.
The matrix includes Cattolica Assicurazioni Group’s material aspects, which are considered as having from average to high importance for the Group (horizontal axis) and for the stakeholders (vertical axis). These non-financial drivers make up a map of risks and opportunities that the Group must deal with.
As shown in the upper right corner of the picture, the 2017 materiality analysis attributed primary importance to the following aspects (i.e. high level of materiality for both Cattolica and the stakeholders):
1. Business ethics and transparency
2. Risk management
3. Economic performance and financial solidity
4. Innovation and multi-channel systems
5. Product transparency and linearity
6. Corporate Governance
7. Training and management of employees
