What is covered?

During this interactive course, you will learn about the concept of materiality, the various types of materiality and how to integrate materiality as a key component of ESG strategy and disclosure. The course covers how to identify and engage with stakeholders, how to interpret and frame results, and how to get the most out of your materiality process as you build and evolve ESG strategy. Throughout the course, there will be exercises through which you will gain knowledge on how to create a step-by-step process for determining the most material ESG topics for your organization.


Learning Objectives of the course:

  • Understand the concept of Materiality

  • Differentiate between Financial and Traditional Materiality

  • Understand the various reporting frameworks and standards associated with the different types of materiality

  • Identify key stakeholders

  • Understand how to connect with different stakeholders based on their specific characteristics

  • Explain the step-by-step process of consulting with stakeholders, completing research, and interpreting the results to finalize a set of material topics

  • Identify potential pitfalls and explore how to avoid them

  • Understand how to integrate the results from a materiality assessment into organizational ESG strategy


The course will be divided in three parts:

  1. Understanding Materiality

  2. Step by step process for determining material topics

  3. Integrating Materiality into ESG strategy


There will be three group exercises during the course, including one at-home assignment (to be completed in small groups).
