Materiality assessment

Our ESG efforts have been, and will continue to be, informed by the results of a materiality assessment conducted to better understand the issues that matter most to our core stakeholders. This document discusses our approach to this assessment and its key findings.

  • In 2022, we conducted our first comprehensive ESG materiality assessment with the knowledge that the topics that matter most to our internal and external stakeholders and operations can shift readily in response to changing market conditions. We plan to conduct full materiality assessments every 3-4 years going forward, with strategic interim assessments conducted every year in between.
  • In 2023, we conducted our first interim materiality refresh and it has informed the strategic thinking in our 2023 U.S. Impact Plan. Based on the refresh findings, we have consolidated “climate change” and “greenhouse gas emissions” into a combined “climate change & emissions” material area. 
    • Note, the 2022 assessment continues to provide the comprehensive analysis of our material areas and should be considered our primary supporting documentation.

KPMG U.S. Audit Quality Report

This year, we introduce our new Audit Quality Report digital site. Going forward, instead of just a moment-in-time annual report, we will provide ongoing updates on the actions we are taking to promote audit quality. Our goal is to inform all of our stakeholders, in real-time, about how our strategy and investments deliver audits that are consistently executed within a strong system of quality control and aligned to professional standards.
