Liberty Global’s Quest for Leaner Sustainability Reporting

As a major company with over $19 billion in revenues, a workforce of 45,000 employees and 29 million customers in Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, it can be easy to get lost in ambiguity when you talk about your role in society. Not at Liberty Global. The company recently released its compact Corporate Responsibility Report 2015, showing that even large, publicly listed companies do not need hundreds of pages to tell their sustainability story in a convincing manner.

Mapping the SDGs to Your Business Priorities

Converting Your Material Issues into a Business Development Tool

Integrated reporting has changed dramatically since Harvard professor Bob Eccles described the concept in the much touted 'One Report' in 2010. Four years experience on the road of Integrated Reporting has resulted in new insights based upon own practises, adapted guidelines and rulings. In his new book 'The Integrated Reporting Movement: Meaning, Momentum, Motives, and Materiality' Professor Eccles emphasizes the importance of a well balanced materiality matrix that not only covers relevant business risks, but that also can be used as a driver for innovation.

How to Create More Mileage from Your Materiality Matrix

Currently a professional sustainability strategy is grounded by its materiality matrix. A materiality matrix allows the company to detect which topics are of high, medium, and low interest for the different stakeholder groups of the company and for the strategy and the business of the company itself. The horizontal axis of the matrix usually represents the impact societal issues (economic, social, environmental, political…) have on the company strategy and business and the vertical axis usually illustrates the interests of the company’s stakeholder groups.
