The process of defining important aspects was conducted in Budimex Group for the first time in 2012 as part of comprehensive audit among key managers. The audit was based on the guidelines of the standard PN-ISO 26000 and concerned the analysis with indication of key areas of the Group’s responsibility. One year later, the selected areas were re-verified in terms of environmental and financial aspects and then developed by the Budimex CSR Committee established in 2013. The areas are also strongly emphasised in the CSR Strategy for 2016-2020. The Strategy is settled in the report, which refers directly to the areas of the Strategy. These areas are monitored by the CSR Committee and they are modified in the event of significant changes in the business model or environment. They are monitored with the use of the following: the results of generally available studies and analyses concerning the construction sector, opinions of Budimex employees, exchange of experience during the Steering Committee meetings at the Agreement for Safety in Construction, associating the largest companies of the construction industry.
Following the publication in 2019 of the 2018 integrated report, we asked our stakeholders to evaluate the report, as we wanted to communicate better in the report in the coming years. They responded to different questions, e.g. regarding transparency and legibility, as well as the completeness of the information contained. They could also share their concerns as well as indicate expectations for future publications. Importantly, 92% of the respondents considered the report clear and transparent. 80% stated that it is complete and contains all necessary information.
The Management Board of Budimex SA decided that there was no need to repeat the significance test among the key managers for the purposes of this report, since, as compared to the previous year, no important changes in this respect have occurred. Such issues such as accident rates, cooperation with subcontractors, biodiversity are still most often indicated by stakeholders. This results from the unchangeable scope of business activity and environmental and social impact. The currently defined areas are consistent with the 2016-2020 Budimex CSR Strategy.
