Materiality assessments are formal exercises aimed at engaging stakeholders to find out how important specific environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are to them. The insights gained can then be used to guide strategy and communication, and help organizations tell a more meaningful sustainability story. Investors are becoming increasingly interested in Materiality but define it a bit more narrowly as the information they need to make solid investment decisions.

Experts say about 80% of the world’s top companies are already tracking and reporting materiality assessment as part of their sustainability reporting efforts. However, Materiality is useful to all organizations, large and small, as it provides a framework for decision making and a roadmap for strategic development.
