Materiality Matrix

Xylem-Sustainability-Report-2021-Materiality Matrix.png

In early 2021, we re-assessed our Sustainability Materiality Matrix with input from a wide range of stakeholders. (More information on this process is detailed on page 17 of our 2020 Sustainability Report.)

We regularly monitor sustainability-related issues that may have material impact on the company and amend the matrix accordingly.

We apply the sustainability management criteria from Resource Transformation: Industrial Machinery & Goods specified by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Materiality Map.
