Materiality Assessment

We engage regularly with our key stakeholders, allowing us to understand and prioritize our sustainability risks and define appropriate responses to emerging corporate challenges.

Given our global scale of operations, our sustainability risks and impacts are complex and transcontinental. Thai Union carried out a materiality assessment to identify the most important issues to our stakeholders and the business as a whole – our ‘material issues’ – including those related to environmental, social and governance risks.

The materiality assessment analyzed our worldwide operations; identified and prioritized our sustainability risks; and defined appropriate responses, which are reflected throughout our sustainability strategy, SeaChange®.
