Krones Materiality matrix
The materiality matrix serves as the fundamental guide for sustainability management within the Krones Group.
The matrix applies equally to Krones AG. In 2019, we conducted a new groupwide materiality analysis in order to identify the non-financial topics that are most material to our business. The analysis was based largely on Global Reporting Initiative criteria and the definition of materiality under Section 289c III of the German Commercial Code (HGB). The horizontal axis shows the impact on non-financial aspects and is based on an environment analysis carried out as part of the materiality analysis, in which the assessments of our most important stakeholders were determined. The vertical axis shows the assessment of sustainability issues in terms of business relevance.
