Stakeholder dialogue and materiality analysis

Fabege’s principal stakeholders are customers, employees, creditors, shareholders and analysts, suppliers and municipalities in which the company operates. We maintain a continual dialogue with all of these stakeholder groups.

New insights for correct company direction

In 2020 we conducted new and extensive stakeholder engagement activities and a materiality analysis via a survey, workshop and comprehensive interviews. The survey was sent out to a total of around 400 individuals, and the response rate was just over 50 per cent. All stakeholder groups were represented. In the survey, we asked the respondents to rank from a stakeholder perspective how Fabege should prioritise and what direction the company should take in relation to the UN 2030 Agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There was also an option to write their own responses, and we asked what overall sustainability goals the stakeholders prioritised in their own businesses.

Following this, we arranged an internal workshop to adjust the seven previously prioritised SDGs and the company’s own specific sustainability targets in line with stakeholders’ expectations. Finally, we conducted comprehensive interviews with customers, the Board, financiers and municipalities. We did this in order to understand nuances and identify synergies between the 17 SDGs. The results of the dialogues and the subsequent analysis reveal that the following SDGs are the most significant for us:

  • Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing
  • Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
  • Goal 9: Sustainable Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities
  • Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production.

Materiality analysis

The materiality analysis has also been used to develop our sustainability reporting and ensure we report on those areas that correspond to our most significant impact on the economy, environment and people, including human rights. In 2022, we updated our materiality analysis to clarify the list of our material topics based on the GRI’s updated definition of a material topic in the GRI Standards 2021. The updated list of material topics can be found on page 25 in our Annual Report 2023.

The most significant sustainability goals are reflected in our work within the focus areas city districts, properties, employees, supply chain, financing, customers and business ethics.
