Data-driven materiality assessments

Understand the nature of ESG risks through data-driven materiality

Materiality is a fundamental tool to not only prioritize risks and opportunities, but to understand the drivers of those risks and the pathways by which they create financial impact. Intelligent materiality provides insight into the best metrics, management approaches, communications strategies, and targets. We conduct bespoke materiality assessments with our clients aligned to any major standard, stakeholder expectations and business priorities.

Materiality Assessments

A robust, criteria-based approach

We help clients understand, prioritize, and identify responses to ESG risks and opportunities. Our services include:

  • Multi-stakeholder materiality assessments to support sustainability and ESG voluntary reporting

  • Broad-based materiality to inform decision-making on what ESG aspects to manage, whom to engage with, and what metrics to measure

  • Integrated ESG risk assessments to support strategic planning and asset allocation

  • Financial materiality of ESG risks to inform financial disclosures

  • Double materiality assessments

Client Example


We developed a criteria-based multi-stakeholder materiality assessment. Our work included conducting stakeholder interviews, workshops, and metrics setting to support data collection and disclosure.

Client Example

Chesapeake Energy

We supported the integration of ESG into the company’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) function. Our work focused on the integration and assessment of ESG risks, including criteria selection and weighting, interview scripting, and was conducted with reference to COSO ESG integration guidance.

ESG 2.0

Long-term policy solutions to environmental and other societal challenges are becoming increasingly difficult to achieve. Stepping into this breach is a clear opportunity for innovation by public and privately held companies, as well as the increasingly significant role of investment and consumption.

Thought Leadership

The Future of ESG

In five years, 100% of investments will consider ESG risks and opportunities. Whether it is the potential toll of severe weather from climate change or the political and economic instability from inequality, ESG will become fundamental to markets.
