GRI Report 2021

Beckers 10th annual sustainability report covers the sustainability performance of the Beckers Group for 2021.

GRI 3–1, 3–2

The material topics have been identified based on their relevance to the business in terms of impacts and in relation to the stakeholders. Stakeholders are those identified in the stakeholder dialogue conducted in 2015. Starting in 2016, reporting practices were adapted to enable a transition to GRI Standards. This was followed by a review of the material topics. Beckers conducted a further extensive stakeholder dialogue in 2019. Based on this process, we developed our 2030 Sustainability Strategy.
