Materiality

At Compass we have regular materiality assessments to identify and explore in depth the issues that matter most to our stakeholders around the world. 

Each year, we review the issues which matter most to our business and stakeholders to help us better assess our key business risks and opportunities. Through this process we have identified seven issues we believe materially impact our business and our relationships with our stakeholders.

These material issues define our pillars – the key areas we focus on.
