Measuring what matters: The need for ESG materiality assessments

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) materiality assessments identify topics that reflect significant economic, environmental and social impacts on businesses and how they can substantively influence the judgments and decisions of an organization’s stakeholders. Companies in the process of disclosing or wanting to disclose their sustainability performance in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accountability Standards Board (SASB), Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the European Directive on non-financial reporting must conduct a materiality assessment to successfully report.

Don’t face the challenge alone — UL Solutions ESG Materiality Assessment Advisory Service experts can guide you through the complex process and provide you with the independent assessment support your organization needs to navigate evolving or new CSRD requirements, locate double materiality examples and more.
