GeSI has a long tradition of running materiality assessments. It started in 2008 with the first ever assessment that was ran for our sector and given the fast pace of change in our industry, we carried out again the exercise in 2014. We thought 4 years were long enough to wait for the third report.
This new materiality report has been commissioned by an independent expert with the input of individual GeSI members and external stakeholders. Built on the previous assessments, with the important addition of a section looking at the alignment of the most material issues for the ICT industry with the Sustainable Development Goals, this report is a GeSI-only document which members can use internally.
