Simply Sustainable

How-to Guide: Materiality Assessment

We live in a fast-changing world. Businesses are increasingly buffeted by major economic, social and environmental trends. New issues are emerging all the time and companies must quickly embrace a different way of doing things to support the business, as well as society and the environment.

In November 2018, we hosted a Sustainability Strategy Masterclass, to discuss the latest sustainability concepts that companies need to consider when developing comprehensive sustainability strategies. We introduced a series of topics to encourage and enable companies to move from incremental to transformative change in their approach.

Among the concepts we discussed is Materiality, and how businesses can take much greater advantage of this vital strategic tool as a foundation to developing transformative sustainability strategies. This How-to Guide discusses the value of materiality and offers practical tips on how to enhance its value within the business.
