Materiality: Determining Priorities for Corporate Citizenship Strategy and Reporting

Whether reporting on your company’s impacts, creating a corporate citizen¬ship strategy, or evaluating a current program, a materiality assessment will help by conveying the areas of greatest significance to your company and society. A materiality assessment accurately prioritizes the corporate citizenship issues that are most important to your stakeholders and busi¬ness 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 issues and develop a materiality matrix for your industry sector and your company in a practical way.
