Materiality Assessment

Mainstreaming sustainability in business strategy

Materiality assessment chart

Anthesis can build interactive dashboards to help stakeholders and colleagues engage with your materiality assessment. The dashboards allows clients to filter results by region, business unit, stakeholder group, topic type, or any other number of factors.

Your materiality assessment should inform more than just your sustainability report. Done well, materiality assessments can provide valuable insights on how sustainability can best create value for your organisation. They also represent a unique opportunity to engage internal and external stakeholder and to hear their views on sustainability priorities and on your current performance.

How we do it

We have carried out materiality assessments for many of the world’s largest corporations and for companies taking their first steps in sustainability. Our approach has three key features:

  • Tailored to your needs – We work with you to define a research, analysis, and engagement process tailored to your needs and the decisions you want to inform.
  • Balancing opinions with evidence – We take an objective approach to your materiality assessment – whether that is through footprint data, risk assessment results, or other evidence-based research – while valuing and integrating more subjective input from a variety of stakeholders.
  • Aligning within the organisation – We support you to collaborate with key internal functions, such as strategic planning, customer insights, and enterprise risk, to gather their insights and align with their processes.

Testimonials

The challenge with this type of project [materiality assessment] is to find the right partner that instinctively understands what is needed, and can deliver efficiently against the project brief. Anthesis’ way of working and communicating enabled us to execute the project on time, on budget, and to an excellent standard.
