Touted as the key to determining the best sustainability strategy, materiality assessments intimidate mere mortals trying to move their organization’s sustainability initiatives forward. Yet, those who have done them and live to tell the tale, say they are critical to gaining organizational alignment. Boston Area Sustainability Group has asked veterans of materiality assessments Asheen Phansey, Alyssa Caddle, and Jim McCabe to lead our discussion.

A materiality assessment is a process of engaging stakeholders to identify what environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are most important to an organization. These findings can help an organization prioritize both where their sustainability initiatives should focus and what’s most important for them to report.
