Stakeholder engagement and materialityIn addition to year-round stakeholder engagement, periodic materiality assessments are used to ensure that EY’s strategy and integrated report are consistent with internal and external expectations for the specific EY themes. Below we give an overview of our stakeholders. In order to be complete in our stakeholder engagement activities, we include all of our stakeholder groups.
In 2015 we performed a comprehensive stakeholder consultation, the outcomes (see GRI, appendix 2) of which served as the basis to select and prioritize the topics covered in last year’s report. It describes the topics that affect our value creation and that matter most to our stakeholders, linking these to the strategic pillars of our Vision 2020 and different forms of capital (resources). This year, the material topics were updated.
