A strategic approach to sustainability.

The process, key results and benefits

Materiality assessments require preparation since they are specific to your corporation. Looking at materiality topics that are typical for an industry is a good starting point. But there is more than just that. Material issues may also stem from your location and other factors that are unique to your corporation. Taking all these factors into account is part of the preparation process. 

The next step is identifying and engaging with your stakeholders. What is the perspective and perception of your stakeholders on ESG topics? What do they consider as relevant or significant, and how important are the topics to them? One way to represent the results is as a matrix.
