Materiality: What Matters to Corporate Citizenship Strategy and Reporting

A materiality assessment accurately prioritizes the corporate citizenship issues that are most important to your stakeholders and business context, enabling you to more strategically allocate time and resources. A materiality matrix, the result of this process, provides a succinct and informative picture for those audiences and serves as an internal decision making roadmap.

This one-day interactive workshop will give you an opportunity to explore the concept of material issues and develop a materiality matrix for your industry sector and your company in a practical way.

  • How to identify and prioritize stakeholders using key attributes of influence, legitimacy, and urgency.
  • To describe issue life cycles and explain their impact.
  • To evaluate different styles of corporate materiality matrices to determine the one most appropriate for your company.
  • How to apply the materiality assessment process to a test case to identify corporate citizenship priorities.
