Join Rob Cameron on Novartis’ second webinar of a series of conversations about the results and outcomes of their 2017 Corporate Responsibility Materiality Assessment.
On this webinar speakers will share Novartis’ current approach to quantifying and monetizing impact dimensions of their corporate responsibility material issue areas.
John Elkington, Chair of the Impact Valuation Advisory Committee, will join this webinar and set the scene. He will embed Novartis’ impact valuation work into the global context and explore what it will take to strengthen the momentum of monetizing impacts across material issue areas.
About the Corporate Responsibility Materiality Assessment
This third full materiality assessment for Novartis plays an important role in strengthening the integration of CR in Novartis’ core business. The objectives of the materiality assessment were to:
- Further align strategies with societal expectations, business needs and market developments;
- Intensify dialogue with key stakeholders on a systematic basis;
- Structure and prioritise Novartis’ corporate reporting
Through its materiality cycle, Novartis thinks deeply and carefully about the expectations of its stakeholders, and how to respond most effectively.
To achieve this, SustainAbility worked with Novartis to ensure the materiality assessment produced deep insights into priority topics.
SustainAbility also supported the development of a country-level toolkit featuring important guidelines and best practices for conducting a local materiality assessment.
“Novartis takes an advanced and evidence-based approach to uncovering its most material topics. Surveying over 1,000 Novartis associates, and almost 200 external stakeholders brings the company valuable strategic insights. Through its materiality cycle, Novartis thinks deeply and carefully about the expectations of its stakeholders, and how to respond most effectively. It also enables the company to focus on the areas that really matter to the business and provides a firm foundation for its success.” – Rob Cameron, Chief Executive, SustainAbility
