As an experienced property developer and portfolio management company, we can look back on a company history spanning nearly 25 years in which we have developed a close-knit network with our key stakeholder groups. On the basis of our day-to-day work and our long-standing dialogue with our stakeholders, we have identified numerous issues that have a notable influ-ence on the sustainable development of VIB. We have presented the eight most significant of these issues in the form of a materiality matrix. In order to take the differing levels of significance of the individual issues into account, we have performed individualised weight-ing of the issues for different stakeholder groups. The materiality matrix comprises what we regard as the most important economic, environmental and social issues; these play a material role in both the sustainable business success of VIB Vermögen AG and the acceptance of VIB on the part of our stakeholders.
