In the Nueva Pescanova Group we have worked on the compilation of all the projects and actions carried out by our company in four pilot countries: Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Namibia.
In total, we identified and classified 226 projects focused on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The materiality analysis identifies two relevant and determining material aspects for us: the food safety of our products and the safety and health of our employees. Aspects focused on consumption reduction, labor responsibility, respect for the environment, governance and our products quality are also added to these two factors.
Given its high relevance, these seven aspects share the same urgent need for implementation in the form of plans, projects and actions on the ground. The 4 guiding principles of our CSR (Planet, People, Product and Communities) are directly applied in the projects we develop in the four countries analyzed with an average of 18, 22, 6 and 11 initiatives, respectively, which demonstrates the cross-cutting nature of the CSR globally.
The analysis exercise and the results obtained have been positive considering that it is the first exercise of these characteristics that we carry out. Our goal is to perform this analysis periodically to ensure that our strategy is always aligned with the expectations of our stakeholders.
The materiality matrix allows us to assess the relevance of the different projectsbased on the prioritization made by the interest groups, both internal and external. Based on their prioritization and analysis, the materiality matrix allows us toidentify in a simple and visual way those aspects that are most relevant to our CSR Master Plan.
The materiality analysis has generated the following materiality matrix: (Download the Materiality Analysis report HERE).
