While materiality is a key tool for sustainability teams, the relationship between materiality and financial reporting, risk, or issue management is often untapped. There are opportunities to build stronger connections to serve the core business.  

BSR Paris will host an event on materiality assessments on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This event will provide the opportunity to learn about four new ways to enhance your materiality assessments to create a more resilient business strategy with sustainability at its core.  

The event will take place in French and in English. When registering, please indicate the workshop in which you will participate.

In the meantime, we are available to answer any questions you might have.
