6 Ways Materiality Assessments Add Value to Sustainability Strategies

For many companies, sustainability is an increasingly important part of their overall business strategy. As a result, sustainability professionals work hard to track, analyze and meaningfully report on their sustainability initiatives to find new opportunities and report on progress to goals.

But with so much data at their disposal, as well as a being closely connected with that data, some find it difficult to extract the most valuable and inspiring insights to propel their efforts forward—and get stakeholders onboard.

The good news is that there’s a solution: materiality assessments.

Materiality assessments are formal engagement exercises that allow you to gain insight into what internal and external stakeholders consider the most important focal points when it comes to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. 

On the Antea Group blog, you’ll discover several ways to use a materiality assessment to gather meaningful insights, build relationships, and boost your sustainability strategy.
