Krones materiality matrix
The materiality matrix serves as the fundamental guide for sustainability activities within the Krones Group.
It is based on a thorough materiality analysis conducted in 2017 using GRI criteria and the definition of materiality under Section 289c III of the German Commercial Code (HGB). The horizontal axis represents the impact on non-financial aspects. It is based on the results of a stakeholder survey that was conducted as part of our materiality analysis to ascertain our key stakeholders’ priorities. The vertical axis shows how sustainability topics stand in terms of their business impact.
