To drive continuous improvement and evaluate our business performance, we closely monitor sustainability and ESG risks that are material to our success. In 2021, we conducted our second materiality assessment. This exercise objectively gathered feedback from internal and external stakeholders including Board members, investors, customers, employees and local community members to determine key focus areas and associated risks and opportunities relevant to our business activities.
2021 Materiality Results
Our 2021 results reflect the internal and external dynamics Crestwood navigates as well as identifying emerging risks and opportunities. This assessment identified 14 material issues, highlighted below, that may potentially have a financial impact on our company.
We use our materiality assessment findings to inform both the context of this report and our next three-year sustainability strategy, which is integrated into our overall business strategy.
