Define key issues and assess stakeholders

Materiality analysis is a valuable method to become aware of sustainability issues. It usually represents the beginning of a process by identifying and addressing critical (= material) issues within an organisation and its stakeholders.

The great advantage of a materiality analysis is that it can be very specific in scope to the needs of the issue at hand. For example, it can approach the issue of sustainability in a very general way or focus very specifically on greenhouse gas emissions.

In a workshop format (on-site or remote) we arrange pre-defined areas into a matrix according to relevance. This matrix forms the centre and the beginning for all further in-depth work. This is because it can also depict different perspectives – for example of the various stakeholders – and thus point in various directions.

On this basis, we bundle and prioritise the results and derive the need for action at levels such as management, reporting and communication, or incorporate them into the company’s due diligence.
