What is Double Materiality?

A Double Materiality Assessment is the key to understand what ESG information you need to incorporate into your sustainability report. But, what is double materiality anyway? Double materiality is a concept in sustainability and finance that considers both the impact of environmental and social issues on an organization’s financial performance (financial materiality) and the impact of the organization’s operations and activities on the environment and society (environmental and social materiality). It emphasizes the interconnection between financial health and sustainable practices, urging organizations to assess and report on both types of impacts.
