Materiality process |GRI 102-43, 102-46|

We listen and share with each other, our clients, and our partners.

Topics relevant to us were identified through a broad research process, conducted with support from external consulting, involving over 300 people ─ suppliers, clients, specialists, and employees (including our senior management). These are the steps in this process:


Among the topics discussed, seven stood out as more relevant after establishing a cutoff limit. Also, guided by our strategy, we included in this group the topics "People Management" and "Social and Environmental Aspects and Impacts,"2 in order to maintain our management and transparency regarding these aspects.

2 Covers the topics: "Water," "Biodiversity," "Local social and economic development," "Private social investment," "Climate change," "Relations with communities neighboring the operations," and "Waste and effluents.”

As a result, we have built the matrix below, which presents the main topics for our business, which are also the basis of the contents of this report.
