Materiality Matrix G4-18
To de ne the content of this Sustainability Re- port, a Materiality Matrix was created accord- ing to and ful lling all of the principles of the GRI G4 guidelines. A er analyzing internal and external documents and based on the material- ity process used for the last report, themes were de ned to be subject on stakeholders consulta- tions to identify in uence and impact on activi- ties at Minerva Foods.
 e consultation process involved employees, suppliers, customers,  nancial institutions, academy, civil society, executives and industry specialists, who responded to an online ques- tionnaire and took part in interviews. With the consolidated data, the material themes were de ned and slipt in four categories: Business Feasibility, Industry Trends, Harmonic Coexis- tence and Environment (see table below with aspects and corresponding GRI indicators). Although they are not considered material, the Company also reports on the G4-EN3 and G4-EN5 indicators, related to energy consump- tion, since continual monitoring is done. G4-19
