We help organisations understand and identify the material issues that have the most impact on your business.
Materiality is the principle of defining the social and environmental topics that matter most to your business and your stakeholders. Materiality assessments should be used as a strategic business tool to identify opportunities and view business risks through a focused sustainability lens.
A broad and varied range of potential issues impacting the business can be narrowed and focused on through stakeholder engagement and effective communication. This categorisation and prioritisation of the most significant issues from across the stakeholder pool allows businesses to develop a clear vision and direction towards executing an effective business and sustainability strategy.
As a core focus in reporting frameworks and accounting standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Standards and the International Integrated Reporting Framework, materiality assessment is an increasingly used tool which significantly improves business processes and better aligns reporting to frameworks for improved clarity and transparency.
