Before a company can define its strategy, it needs to determine what is material for the company. This is true for financial as well as non-financial factors. Although several guidelines are available (e.g., GRI, IR, SASB) , the definition and process for materiality analysis differ widely. A new way developed by Maersk enables a much better focus and the full integration of the sustainability process.

Key takeaways:

  • Overview of different concepts to determine non- financial materiality
  • Current practices in materiality—findings from The Conference Board study
  • Learn from a fresh approach by Maersk
  • Develop insights on how to better integrate materiality analysis into the strategy process
