Sustainability reporting is increasingly in focus as investors, potential employees and customers look to how a company performs well beyond its financial statements. During 2019 we have experienced more dialogue with key stakeholders about sustainability issues affecting the business than ever before.
SEEK's sustainability reporting describes our performance and initiatives across our key ESG areas. Through increased transparency the aim is to further build trust with investors, customers and the community about how SEEK manages its ESG risks and opportunities. We are proud of the positive social impact of our purpose-led business, and our achievements so far in addressing key areas of stakeholder interest.
Reporting what matters
SEEK has assessed its impacts on people, the environment and the community in the context of SEEK's long-term sustainability. The topics covered in this report were guided by a materiality assessment to determine SEEK's main impacts from the viewpoint of stakeholders, as well as SEEK's approach to corporate governance. To determine the topics we combined feedback from our investors, SEEK leaders and subject matter experts and our risk management framework. Close consideration of stakeholder expectations, the external environment, the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations and the Group Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards contributed to topic selection. Topic weighting was informed by a self-assessment of the impact of the ESG topics on SEEK's customers, activities, relationships and business strategy.
