Our materiality assessment identifies key areas of risk and value within a business and how a sustainable approach can address these.
Our two stage materiality approach begins with an evaluation of business objectives and impacts. Unlike traditional materiality assessments that rely primarily on stakeholder perceptions to drive analysis, we integrate technical data, science, and industry benchmarks to create a fact based view of sustainability risks and opportunities for our clients. This consists of an array of surveys, workshops and interviews with stakeholders.
This empirical data can help identify what positive and effective steps a company can take to affect sustainability issues such as water, biodiversity, consumer health, privacy and other issues. Such analysis is essential to GRI/G4 sustainable reporting.
