Sustainability Materiality Assessment
In 2016, we conducted a materiality assessment, identifying the sustainability topics that are the most important to CA Technologies and to our stakeholders, to inform our sustainability strategy and lay the foundation of future reporting.
For the 2016 materiality refresh, we evolved our methodology while also using the topics universe identified in 2013 as the starting point of our analysis. We also completed a peer-review assessment of key suppliers, customers and influencers within the industry, which allowed us to track the changing priorities of our key areas of focus.
As part of our materiality assessment, we also conducted interviews with key internal stakeholders to assess the relative importance of sustainability issues across CA. The same participants completed a survey in which they ranked a subset of the topics universe based on their determination of each topic’s importance to CA Technologies. The interview process allowed participants to highlight topic areas that were not included in the survey shortlist. In addition to a growing emphasis on environmental topics, interviews with key internal stakeholders in 2016 revealed a strong interest in the sustainable future growth of CA Technologies as it proactively helps customers succeed in their digital transformation journey.
We continue to engage with all of our stakeholders—as well as with our industry as a whole—to update our strategy around materiality and ensure that our focus areas remain aligned with the most pressing issues.
