Double materiality assessment

Sandvik has performed a double materiality assessment (DMA) to determine material topics.

The double materiality assessment was performed supported by the topics included in the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) and GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) as well as the dependence on natural, social, and human resources. The impact assessment includes positive, negative, actual, and potential impacts. The mapping and understanding of impacts were primarily centered on the value chains where impacts were deemed most likely to occur.
