Identification

EGCO Group assesses the material issues in economic, social, and environmental aspects that may positively or negatively impact the Company, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. The assessment is conducted with consideration to internal and external risk factors, alignment with the international standards, the national and international trends in sustainability, and peer companies in the power and infrastructure sector.

Prioritization

EGCO Group ranks material issues by 2 factors: 1) the interest or expectation of internal and external stakeholders and 2) the alignment with international standards and probability on a national and international level. The topics are then ranked by their impacts on the ESG and develop into a Materiality Matrix based on their importance.

Validation

Selected external stakeholders help validate the correctness of the materiality matrix after the prioritization process. The validated materiality issues are then reported to the Executives, who will review them with consideration to the Company’s strategies and goals before approving the materiality matrix for public disclosures. After the approval, material issues are organized with respect to their context in alignment with the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative Standards) and the UN’s SDGs. The scope of reporting on each topic is then established.

Review
