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.
A good materiality assessment looks into the future to consider the impacts of emerging issues on your company. We also conduct stand-alone future trends analyses to help you ensure that your strategy and goals will continue to be relevant as stakeholder concerns evolve and new issues arise.
Our Materiality Assessment services
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.
Our assessments are key to providing valuable insights for your business, and gives you an opportunity to engage with your stakeholders an listen to their sustainability priorities and to develop your sustainability roadmaps and action plans.
