Lean Materiality Matrix Re-Fresh Using Big Data

The materiality matrix has become a familiar sight in corporate reporting, representing a selection of topics that generate impact on the company and that are relevant to its stakeholders. Traditionally, full materiality assessments are conducted involving internal and external stakeholders in an elaborate process. But, today’s turbulent business environment requires a more frequent and agile approach, monitoring sustainability risks and opportunities around the clock. 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, among others.

RobecoSAM and Bloomberg: Changing the Game

Earlier this year, RobecoSAM already announced its new partnership with Bloomberg, a principal provider of business and financial information. As a result, the performance of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) of all companies that have been appraised will be accessible by the Bloomberg licensees. This might come as a shock to those companies that have been assessed - often without their knowledge - based on publicly available information only.

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.

Sustainability Program Can Increase Target Price by 15%

The valuation impact of sustainability can be very high. ESG based value driver analysis led to a target price impact of -19% at Anglo American and +23% at Chr. Hansen. However, when talking to Investor Relations executives and Board members of listed companies, a frequently heard statement is “Why bother, our investors are not interested in sustainability”. This claim is sourced from the observation that there are few questions in shareholders meetings and earnings calls that address the topic. But how is that possible with the level of assets under management of ESG integrated funds rising beyond €6 trillion in Europe alone?
