MPRL E&P’s 2019 Materiality Assessment

In the fiscal year 2019-2020, MPRL E&P has worked with CSR Asia (an ELEVATE company), an independent sustainability consultancy based in Singapore, to conduct an updated assessment of sustainability topics most material to the key stakeholders and the company now and in future, guided by a three-step process of the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI). The words CSR, sustainability and ESG were interchangeably used in this analysis.

MPRL E&P’s 2019 Materiality Assessment


MPRL E&P last performed a materiality assessment in 2014-2015 in its effort to put a CSR strategy in place for the first time. When exploring the material topics in this 2019 materiality assessment, MPRL E&P has underscored achieving some important objectives as follows:

Materiality Matrix

Following the formal materiality assessment process which included selected interviews, Focus Group Discussions, an online survey with internal and external stakeholders, as well as a material workshop with Senior Management and Department Heads, MPRL E&P has come up with a list of sustainability topics that are considered material to the stakeholder engagement and reporting perspectives.

MPRL E&P recognizes the topics should not be viewed in isolation as they are increasingly interconnected and can render cross functional implications. They are the areas of focus with regard to sustainability in which the company can and will have the most impacts. In addition, they are the areas that potentially expose the company to the most risks, requiring managing their performance as a priority.
