CAMPAIGN: Building the Future of Mobility (2013)

We continuously engage with our stakeholders to understand their expectations and the issues that are most important for us to address.

In 2012, we conducted our first formal, company-wide external stakeholder assessment and materiality analysis to deepen this understanding, prioritize issues and inform the threshold and depth of the topics to be addressed in our CSR report. Bombardier considered issues both within and outside of its direct control. We consulted eight stakeholder groups: customers, suppliers, sponsorship recipients, investors, industry groups, labour unions, regulators and non-governmental organizations. We also incorporated employees’ views through data gathered from the employee engagement survey.

In 2013, the CSR Committee reassessed the issues that it saw as having the biggest potential impact on the business. As part of this internal reassessment, the Committee considered the evolution of the business strategy, regulatory changes, feedback from external sustainability rating agencies and input it received through ongoing dialogues with a variety of internal and external stakeholders.

Taking the results from the 2012 stakeholder assessment and the 2013 internal assessment, we created an interactive materiality matrix that we encourage you to explore.
