In accordance with GRI Standards and international best practices, ASTM has defined its materiality analysis in order to identify, consistently with its strategic priorities and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the most relevant sustainability issues. Using this process, the Group has considered aspects that have a significant impact on the economic, social and environmental performance and that could substantially influence the ratings and Stakeholders’ decisions as material.
