#Sustainability Management


While materiality is a key tool for sustainability teams, the relationship between materiality and financial reporting, risk, or issue management not always clear to the core business. This is related to the historic separation of sustainability and business strategy.

To create a more resilient business strategy with sustainability at its core, BSR provides four new approaches to enhancing materiality and increasing its relevance: incorporating futures thinking, aligning with ERM, using big data, and conducting regional analysis. This event will discuss all four approaches in detail.

Speakers

  • Jessica Synkoski, Associate Director, Global Sustainability, Strategy and Engagement, AstraZeneca
  • Alison Taylor, Managing Director, Sustainability Management, BSR
