  2. raise awareness and the level of national involvement
  3. help make sustainability the main lever of change in pursuit of a future that is more efficient, more equitable and safer in the management of resources
  4. be characterized as a subject oriented towards the development of operational solutions and the creation of shared economic, social and environmental values
  5. encourage partnerships, collective actions and dialogue among all actors in the promotion of sustainability
  6. promote accountability, fairness and transparency in communication and corporate reporting

The Working Group is engaged in a course of study on how to implement the principle of materiality in the processes of corporate sustainability reporting and the analysis of the potential that this instrument can have in terms of integrating sustainability into firms’ business strategy. The meeting will have several objectives including: the sharing of evidence raised through comparative analysis of corporate case studies implemented by the working group during previous meetings; an update on the case studies previously shared within the working group; the analysis of recent methodological contributions made at an international level for the analysis of materiality; the definition of a process and how to work towards the creation and testing of a methodology on implementing the principle of materiality in the processes of corporate sustainability reporting.
