Our material environmental and social topics

Suncorp is proactively managing material environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities as identified by our key stakeholders and our business.

Introduction

Suncorp conducts regular materiality assessments to help identify and prioritise the topics of most significance for our business. This process helps us make more informed and balanced decisions that reflect the needs and expectations of our business, stakeholders and society, both now and in the future. 

Our Approach

We engage with a broad range of stakeholders to identify the most material topics impacting our business. These include our customers, employees, shareholders, business partners and suppliers, government, industry and regulatory bodies, consumer advocacy groups, academics and non-government organisations. We also conduct in-depth interviews with our senior leaders.

Suncorp evaluates how important these topics are to stakeholders and the impact they may have on the sustainability of our business. Effectively responding to these risks and opportunities ensures we build a more resilient organisation. 

The outcomes of this materiality assessment shape our overarching approach to corporate responsibility, including our framework, principles and strategies.
