How to establish materiality in an organization

Materiality in ESG (environmental, social, and governance) refers to the relevance and significance of ESG issues to a particular company and its stakeholders. Establishing materiality in an organization is a crucial aspect of ESG analysis, as it helps prioritize efforts and resources toward addressing the most pressing ESG issues. The following steps can be taken to establish materiality in an organization:

Steps to Establish Materiality in ESG Analysis: Prioritizing Sustainable Action

Stakeholder Engagement

Engage with key stakeholders, such as employees, customers, investors, and suppliers, to understand their perspectives on ESG issues and what they consider to be material to the company.

ESG Data and Analysis

Collect and analyze relevant ESG data, such as environmental and social impact assessments, to understand the company's exposure to ESG risks and opportunities.

Internal Review

Review the company's operations, business model, and strategy to identify any ESG issues that could have a material impact on the company's financial performance or reputation.

External Benchmarking

Compare the company's ESG performance to peers and industry benchmarks to identify areas of relative strength or weakness and to understand what ESG issues are considered to be material in the industry.


Based on the results of the stakeholder engagement, data analysis, internal review, and benchmarking, prioritize the ESG issues that are most material to the company.


Integrate the prioritized ESG issues into the company's business strategy, governance processes, and reporting to ensure that they are effectively managed and communicated to stakeholders.
