Materiality is a fundamental part of Grupo Nutresa’s sustainability management system and represents a tool for the formulation of the corporate strategies.
Therefore, since 2011, the Organization has been conducting its materiality analysis to identify and confirm the subjects and trends that might have a major impact on its ability to generate value in the short, medium and long term.
In 2021, based on the belief that materiality is a dynamic and evolving exercise that must be adapted to the new trends and challenges emerging from the sustainability context and the industry, the Company updated its materiality analysis, which establishes the basis for managing environmental, social and governance issues, thus becoming the Organization’s road map for 2030.
The materiality analysis has been developed by focusing on the double materiality or perspective approach; it integrates the impact on the environment or the society, as well as the risks and opportunities of the business setting that could affect the Company’s ability to create value in the long term, in addition to the economic performance.
Based on the fundamental premise of being always a people-centered Organization, Grupo Nutresa permanently strives to contribute to the development of its stakeholders by building trust-based relationships through timely and bidirectional communication, engagement and collaboration, making sure to operate with integrity and transparency and to listen actively to others at all times.
The Company’s engagement model is aligned with the guidelines of the international standard AA1000, which requires Grupo Nutresa to apply the essential principles of inclusiveness, materiality, impact and Responsiveness in all the relations with its stakeholders. Since 2018, the Organization has been working on developing the capabilities of its employees with the purpose of strengthening their effective managerial skills in all its engagement processes. This is a constant and progressive work that enriches the materiality analysis and strengthens the sustainability management efforts, as well as the resilience of the organizational strategy.
