Moncler considers the materiality analysis as an important tool to identify the most relevant environmental and social priorities that are consistent with its business strategy, and to define the contents of the Sustainability Report according to GRI-G4 international reporting guidelines.
In terms of sustainability reporting, the aspects deemed as material (or relevant) are those that have a significant impact on the economic, social, and environmental performance of the Company or that may substantially influence stakeholders’ perceptions and decisions. Accordingly, the materiality analysis is two-fold, as it takes account of the standpoint not only of the Company, but also of its stakeholders.
The first materiality analysis was performed by the Sustainability Unit in 2015 with the support of a specialist consultancy, through a structured process involving the Group’s management.

The analysis was performed through a four-step process:

• identification of all potential material aspects of significance to Moncler. This involved the analysis of corporate documents (Code of Ethics, Annual Report, Strategic Plan, etc.), external literature on changes in market scenarios1, sustainability assessment questionnaires by rat- ing agencies, sector studies, media and internet research, and multi-stakeholder standards/initiatives2
• prioritisation of the materials aspects. The aspects were prioritised by liaison officers from internal Moncler divisions, tasked with assessing each issue from the Company’s standpoint as well as that of stakeholders, rating each on a scale from 1 to 5
• approval by the Sustainability Steering Committee
• presentation to the Board of Directors.

The materiality analysis identified 15 material aspects3, including: brand reputation, product quality and safety, responsible sourcing, client relations and client satisfaction, performance assessment and career development, fostering a culture of sustainability, animal welfare, and employee engagement.

3Within the scope of the analysis, aspects related to corporate governance, regulatory compliance, and economic performance were considered prerequisites; as such, they were not individually examined in the process, but were nevertheless accounted for in this Report.
