Manchester Airports Group – Materiality Assessment
Manchester Airports Group (MAG) recently asked for our support in undertaking an extensive materiality assessment, to feed into their strategy discussions. Simply Sustainable worked with the business to develop a tailored approach.
We conducted a series of internal and external interviews, as well as public focus group sessions to reach a wider group of stakeholders. Through these, we sought to understand where the company’s most significant impacts lay, and where it was meeting, falling short of, or exceeding its obligation as a responsible neighbour.
Using our best practice methodology, we then analysed the results and mapped them against significant risks and opportunities to the business. We also tracked their relevance to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 underlying targets. The output was a series of priority issues, goals and targets
