Group’s Materiality analysis

The D’Ieteren group pays continuous attention to the economic, environmental and social impact of its activities. It, therefore, encourages and supports the commitment of its different businesses to act responsibly and with integrity through open dialogue. As the parent company of the D’Ieteren Group, D’Ieteren SA itself has a relatively low environmental and social footprint. The largest impact occurs as a result of where D’Ieteren chooses to invest. Therefore, D’Ieteren SA has opted for separate reporting for each of its activities in terms of their environmental, social and personal impacts, their respect for human rights and their stance on anti-corruption and bribery.

A number of the topics addressed in the following pages have been identified as key risks, which are listed in the internal controls and risk management systems chapter.

D’Ieteren has decided to carry out a “materiality analysis” in order to report on a range of environmental and social matters. This analysis aims to determine significant environmental and social impacts that D’Ieteren’s activities have on their stakeholders and the society at large. External sustainability experts supported D’Ieteren and its activities in this process and contributed to ensure a consistent and accurate materiality assessment. The analysis was conducted based on the principle of materiality as set out in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
