In an effort to identify and prioritise the expectations of our different stakeholders we have updated our materiality assessment with assistance from an independent expert.
For achieving greater diversity of analysis we conducted our consultation procedure in several of the countries in which we operate: Spain, France, Italy, India, Netherlands, Morocco, United States and Canada. 23 areas of consultation were included, classified into 8 different subject areas: (i) health and safety of direct and indirect workers, (ii) quality of work, (iii) positive socio-economic impact, (iv) driving force of innovation, (v) promotion of healthy and sustainable food, (vi) maximising food security and quality, (vii) implementation of environmental policies and (viii) good governance, integrity and transparency.
The outcome is a global materiality matrix with a table of priorities of 10 important issues on which we are focusing our CSR work.
