R: Re-Fresh Materiality Assessment
Finch & Beak’s Re-Fresh Materiality Assessment guarantees an annual update of your materiality matrix within 4 weeks by using a big data analysis on corporate reporting trends from Datamaran Benchmark, as well as big data from Bloomberg and CDP, and others. By using existing big data tools, expensive surveys become dispensable and the required capacity from internal teams is limited. The result is a new materiality matrix including process documentation and an action plan outlining the next steps to accelerate.
A: Agile Benchmark Report
The Agile Benchmark Report is an actionable working document that helps companies understand their current strengths and weaknesses in Dow Jones Sustainability Index performance, and assists topic owners by identifying concrete improvement areas and how to tackle them. It includes three key elements for each chapter in the DJSI questionnaire: trends & developments, rationale & requirements, and concrete improvement areas.
P: Peer Analysis
The Peer analysis is conducted on the basis of top peers that have been selected by the client.
