The Intersection of Materiality & ESG:
A Foundation for Business Excellence
New York, 24 June 2019
Key stakeholders — investors in particular — have been increasingly engaged on the topic of materiality, especially as it intersects with environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues. Because these issues now occupy a more prominent place in corporate responsibility, risk identification, and enterprise strategy, it’s important to understand how companies assess and respond to their material impacts. What is the materiality assessment process? How is it changing? Are there clear best practices for companies to follow?
Join Nasdaq, Datamaran, the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and other thought leaders as we explore current trends in materiality, provide practical guidance on ESG, and propose practical ways forward for your company and your stakeholders.
