Stakeholder Relationships



Strategic orientation of the parent company Fraport AG is based on a systematic dialogue with internal and external stakeholders. Since 2010, Fraport AG has been developing its materiality matrix which is used to show the company’s key challenges. In the materiality matrix, Fraport AG identifies those areas that have a great impact on business activity and strategic importance to society. At the same time, it recognizes and evaluates the factors that are important for strategic stakeholders. In 2018, based on an electronic survey, the company carried out evaluation of key topics made by all key stakeholders. The key topics comprise five areas: corporate governance, economic improvements, employees, environment and social community. 

From the point of view of Fraport AG's business, customer satisfaction and services quality are rated highest, which is also very important for strategic stakeholders. Management and compliance as well as company's reputation as an attractive and responsible employer are very important areas both to the company and to the stakeholders. Profitability is very important to Fraport AG and is given slightly less importance by strategic stakeholders. The company places the Group's growth and development among its highest priorities, while this is somewhat less important to the stakeholders.

Generally all categories of management are rated as very important, as are the categories of economic enhacement. Occupational safety and health as well as ideas and innovations, which fall under the field of employees, are rated as of medium importance. All categories of environmental areas have the same status (protection of environment and nature, climate protection, air quality) and communities (value generation and integration in the region, noise abatement).

It should be emphasized that, despite certain differences in importance for Fraport AG, all categories are important, otherwise they would not be included in the materiality matrix. All categories are carefully managed and progress is measured.

Fraport Slovenija takes over the essential topics defined by the parent company, and it reasonably incorporates them into its environment.  

For 2020, the Strategy department of Fraport AG expects that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has led to shifts on the materiality matrix. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the axis Impact of business activities and its topics Occupational safety and health, Profitability, Growth and development in the Group, Engagement in the region, and environmental matters such as Climate protection, Protection of environment and nature, Air quality and also Noise abatement. Regarding the Relevance for long-term business activities, the issues Ideas and innovation, Occupational safety and health, Climate protection and Protection of environment and nature will be more relevant in the future. Concerning the axis Relevance for stakeholders, the Covid-19 pandemic has led to shifts on the issues Occupational safety and health, Profitability, Growth and development in the Group, Ideas and innovation and Attractive and responsible employer. This assumption is based on internal analyses of the Strategy department. In order to validate this assumption and confirm the changes, a new stakeholder survey will be conducted as soon as the ongoing situation allows it. The Executive Board has released these shifts.
