Materiality Assessment: How We Think About Sustainability
As new global challenges continue to emerge and with significant changes to our portfolio, in 2023 we released our second materiality assessment to understand which sustainability topics are most important to our internal and external stakeholders. In the face of changing practices and requirements, we chose to perform a double-materiality assessment to generate greater insights into key sustainability topics that are material1 to us and how that impacts society and the environment.
