Sustainability Report FY 2021

139 RUFFINO | Sustainability Report FY 2021 Materiality Assessment and Identifying Stakeholders The first stage of the materiality assessment pro- cess focuses on the analysis aimed at mapping the external, operational, market and corporate context for the Group, with a focus on the fol- lowing sources: • International associations including the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV), World Economic Forum (WEF), UN Glo- bal Compact (UNGC), International Federation Of Wine And Spirits (FIVS) and the European Committee Of Wine Companies (CEEV); • Professional bodies like Federvini, Unione Italiana Vini, Associazione Nazionale Donne Del Vino, VIVA La sostenibilità nella vitivini- coltura in Italia; Consorzio Chianti Classico and Consorzio Tutela Prosecco DOC; • Academia through the analysis of sector-rela- ted articles on social, environmental, econo- mic and governance topics; • Peers to examine the material topics set out in the Sustainability Report; • The press in order to examine sectorial trends; • Internal documents such as the 2019 Sustai- nability Report, the Company Code of Conduct and Ethics, the Company Code of Conduct and Sustainability Guidelines for Suppliers, com- pany policies and the goals that the Group has already set for itself. The Group involved the top management in mapping the relevant stakeholders, essentially confirming the map compiled in 2019, with the addition of three new Stakeholder categories: “New talent”, “CBI colleagues” and “Professional associations”. More details are available in the “We respect our history through sustainable in- novation” chapter, in the paragraph “Materiality analysis and stakeholder inclusivity”. The entirety of the elements enabled 20 potential- ly relevant topics to be identified, which formed the base on which the following are structured: • materiality update questionnaire aimed at the top management, which communicated the relevance of the topics proposed from the point of view of the company and its reference stakeholders; • semi-structured interviews aimed at the Managing Director and the Director of Te- nute Ruffino in order to examine the Group’s strategy and vision in relation to the selected topics, risks and opportunities, stakeholder expectations, impacts generated along the va- lue chain, organizational base and initiatives carried out during the year. These two moments of comparison enabled the topics that emerged from the desktop analysis to be confirmed, integrated, removed or aggregated, setting out the material topics for the Group, na- mely those of an economic, environmental and social nature deemed strategically and operatio- nally relevant for the company and its stakehol- ders, whether internal or external, from the point of view of a positive or negative, real or potential impact. The following table shows the material topics, the related description in context for the Ruffino Group and the impact boundary.
