An Post's material indicators
Continuous assessment of our material issues
In addition to considering the SDGs identified by the International Postal Corporation (IPC) as most relevant for the postal sector, we consistently engage in dialogue with our stakeholders to understand their views, worries and expectations. Combining these with An Post’s own evaluation of key risks was crucial in identifying a list of potential areas of focus.
We then plotted the areas of interest to stakeholders against our assessed risk to An Post to gain insight into the overall materiality of the areas to An Post. By reconciling the points in the top right quadrant with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, we were able to identify the core SDGs we should focus on. Reassuringly, this exercise confirmed that the SDGs identified by IPC are also those which are most relevant to An Post. At the same time, it must be emphasised that An Post remains committed to advancing all 17 UN SDGs.
