NEW YORK, Aug. 08 /CSRwire/ - AccountAbility has released a comprehensive report examining the growing importance of non-financial factors on corporate performance, disclosure, and valuation. Redefining Materiality II was developed in response to accelerating acceptance that non-financial materiality is an influential factor in corporate valuation.

As part of a new series of publications on materiality, the report describes the landscape of various global materiality initiatives and provides a framework for corporate leaders and boards to enhance the definition and management of non-financial materiality.

"The boundaries between corporations, the environment and society continue to blur,” said Ted Grant, Head of Global Research and Development at AccountAbility. “This blurring has made identifying and focusing on what is truly important to long-term company performance, impact and sustainability even more critical as a governance and management discipline."

On September 5, 2013, at 11:00am EDT, AccountAbility will host a webinar with report author Dr. Marcy Murninghan, editor Ted Grant, and private sector representatives. The discussion will focus on current developments in sustainability and materiality and their implications for private sector institutions.
