What’s involved in the Materiality Review?

Written by 

Materiality is determined through a comprehensive, confidential, on-site review of information and Board and Committee packets circulated through the reporting period. This internal materiality scan is supplemented by review of the company’s stakeholder external communications such as media/blog analysis and a verification of message alignment between the “inside” and “outside” story.

The output from this process is a Materiality Scan Report that includes findings that could potentially influence the content of your forthcoming report – and will act as a template for our analysis of its “completeness”.
