ESG Acceleration Webinar: Materiality in Motion

The impact of EFRAG's reporting standard updates on (double) materiality assessments
To maximize the value of your organisation's materiality assessment, it is crucial to stay informed about reporting updates and incorporate it in your approach and implementation. In this ESG Acceleration webinar, we will discuss the impact of recent reporting developments including EFRAG's first draft of the European sustainability reporting standards. Special guest presenter Virginie Delcroix, VP Sustainable Development at Arkema, will share insights on how the company's recent double-materiality assessment engaged its key stakeholders, helped to sharpen the sustainability program and to connect to the business strategy.

Maximizing the value of your materiality assessment

Finch & Beak’s view is that a materiality assessment is a vital starting point to determine your organizations’ value drivers.

Bas Nuijten, Director Consulting and materiality expert from Finch & Beak will discuss most relevant and urgent reporting updates and in particular those of EFRAG (European Financial Reporting Advisory Group) to consider just in time to identify priorities for 2023 with the new reporting season starting soon. In addition to the overview of the updates, he will touch upon the implications for organizations and provide helpful materiality activation tips. 
In April EFRAG issued the first draft of sustainability reporting standards for public comment. The standards will require detailed corporate reporting on a broad range of environmental, social, and governance issues, as well as audited assurance on the information disclosed. The new rules are part of Europe’s proposed Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which could be enacted into law as early as the end of 2022. 

Arkema is a Global leader in Specialty Materials with an inspiring vision and intentional sustainability strategy to contribute to making the world more sustainable with and through their business. Our guest speaker, Virginie Delcroix, VP Sustainable Development at Arkema will be sharing stories about and practical examples of how the company approaches materiality, engages with stakeholders and implements the outcomes considering the unique industries in which the company operates in.

Key lessons to be learned during the session:

  • An overview of the most recent reporting standard updates 
  • Case presentation from industry leader Arkema about its approach to materiality, how to engage key stakeholders and how to connect  with the business strategy
  • Practical best practices and materiality activation tips
