From 2014 – 15 reporting year onwards, we are following the GRI G4 guidelines for our reporting. In line with G4 requirement to focus on ‘what matters’ and ‘where it matters’, we undertook an exercise to determine the most material issues to include in this report from multiple dimensions of risk, returns and relevance. We adopted the following steps to identify material aspects for reporting.
From the universe of issues or dimensions that was identified as material, a total of 19 aspects and 6 topics have been finalized for reporting. Depending on the relative importance, the other identified issues identified will be detailed in the respective sections as part of disclosure of management approach. The outcomes of the process were shared with all relevant functions for review and the consequent feedback was incorporated.
A visual summary of the materiality map is given overleaf.
