Continuous monitoring of material issues is critical to staying on top of emerging risks and opportunities. In 2020, Barco launched its first materiality assessment to understand what topics matter most to its businesses and stakeholders. We kept focusing our attention on the topics that our stakeholders defined as ‘material’ in that assessment until the end of 2023 – when we conducted a double materiality assessment.

Linking our materiality matrix to the UN SDGs

The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals are key in Barco’s sustainability ambition. We defined six SDGs that are closely linked to our high material topics and our overall strategy – these are the domains where we can have the most impact.
