Capitals:

External and internal Stakeholders were involved in the process of selecting relevant aspects to be reported by the ORLEN Group. The process of defining relevant reporting aspects at the ORLEN Group included the following activities:

  • In December 2017, representatives of the ORLEN Group and its stakeholder environment took part in a meeting (Stakeholder Panel) organised according to the international AA1000SES standard on managing stakeholder relations. The consultations concerned priority directions for sustainable and responsible business, as well as formulating expectations as to disclosures relating to the Company's operations and their social and economic impact, including identification of their relevance. The panel was attended by representatives of industry organisations and institutions, academics, social partners, suppliers, and customers.
  • Analysis of perception studies, media coverage of the ORLEN Group and internal analyses, the purpose of which was to identify key economic, social and environmental aspects of the ORLEN Group's operations.
  • Completion of surveys by representatives of the Company’s key areas covered by the Report.
  • Internal consultations of the reporting team.

As a result, the final list of the ORLEN Group’s relevant reporting aspects was prepared, including determination of their relevance for the ORLEN Group and its stakeholder environment (i.e. low, moderate and high).

 

Relevant reporting aspects identified by external and internal Stakeholders:

According to external stakeholders, the following aspects: strategy implementation, financial position and safety of industrial processes were of high relevance, whereas contribution to international economic growth, innovation and research, as well as responsibility towards customers and other key stakeholders were among aspects of moderate relevance. The effect of macroeconomic environment and responsible supply chain were considered as aspects of low relevance. The Group’s internal stakeholders identified two aspects of moderate relevance, namely participation in social life and impact on local communities, as well as diversity and equal opportunities. The other aspects were viewed as highly relevant.

This multiple-step process of defining relevant aspects led to developing the ORLEN Group's Relevance Matrix.
