Materiality: What Matters to Corporate Citizenship Strategy and Reporting
Companies invest millions of dollars and tens of thousands of hours of employee time to advance corporate citizenship and there has been dramatic growth in reporting by U.S. companies.
But are they focused on the right areas and on the right issues? Through internal dialogue and through identification, prioritization, and engagement with stakeholders, companies identify business, social, and environmental issues important to their business and to other stakeholders. Quantifying the effects of these issues can drive the identification of key risks and opportunities.
This one-day program will enable those involved with the development, execution, and/or reporting of their company’s materiality process to become familiar with and begin to apply concepts and frameworks that can help identify material issues.
