ESG materiality and engagement

The sustainability and climate team can provide you with support throughout this process, through varying degrees of involvement, depending on what stage your organisation is at in its journey

Organisations embarking on their sustainability journey must ask, ‘why do we exist?’ To answer this, it’s important to engage internally and externally with stakeholders as to how the organisation creates and erodes value. This can inform a materiality assessment of key sustainability issues to then be incorporated into strategy and decision making.

Once an organisation has their material sustainability issues, they can go on to incorporate these into their strategy, decision making (integrated thinking), impact measurement, and integrated reporting.
