Case Study

Situation or challenge

Our client had completed a materiality assessment lead by the compliance and legal departments. Once completed, the assessment was distributed around the business to mixed reviews. They wanted to revisit the process, the attendees and the structure of the materiality assessment. They also wanted to broaden the pool of experts, bring in some outsiders and reconsider additional risks.  


Our solution was apply our Speeki Uplift™ system to look for opportunities to review and improve the materiality assessment process. While it was not to reconduct the process itself, but rather to focus on suggesting areas to improve and uplift the quality of the assessment.


The results showed clearly that the company had a lot to do to get ESG risks into their existing materiality assessment process.

The major issue was a lack of definition and understanding on the ESG risk areas and an under appreciation for the impact of ESG risk failures on the business.

The aim of making the materiality assessment system more robust, more relevant, more understood and more efficient was achieved.
