Curiosity zone

Stakeholders are persons or groups who are directly or indirectly affected by a project, as well as those who may have interests in a project and/or the ability to influence its outcome, either positively or negatively. Stakeholders may include employees, locally affected communities or individuals and their formal and informal representatives, investors, national or local government authorities, politicians, religious leaders, civil society organisations and groups with special interests, the academic community, or other businesses.
The “stake” that each of these different individuals or groups has in a project or investment will vary.
The AccountAbility 1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard defines stakeholders as “… those groups who affect and/or could be affected by an organisation’s activities, products or services and associated performance. This does not include all those who may have knowledge of or views about the organisation. Organisations will have many stakeholders, each with distinct types and levels of involvement, and often with diverse and sometimes conflicting interests and concerns.”

Stakeholder Mapping and Stakeholder Management

Stakeholder Mapping is a way to learn the perspectives of stakeholders, area they represent, and what interests and/or perspectives they bring to the project interest. It is the first step in the process of stakeholder engagement and starts with stakeholder identification – determining who your project stakeholders are, and their key groupings and sub-groupings. In fact, certain stakeholder groups might be pre-determined through regulatory requirements.
From this flows stakeholder analysis, a more in-depth look at stakeholder group interests, how they will be affected and to what degree, and what influence they could have on your project.
Stakeholder mapping provides the basis from which you can build your stakeholder engagement strategy.
An important point to note that not all stakeholders in a particular group or sub-group will necessarily share the same concerns or have unified opinions or priorities.
The process helps in the overall process of stakeholder management. Engaging these stakeholders in a way that not only reduces the risks associated with the stakeholders but is a confidence-building measure amongst the various stakeholders.
Stakeholder engagement is the process used by an organisation to engage relevant stakeholders for a purpose to achieve accepted outcomes. It is an umbrella term encompassing a range of activities and interactions over the life of a project. International Finance Corporation (IFC) has divided the stakeholder engagement process into the following eight components.
  • Stakeholder Identification and Analysis
  • Information Disclosure
  • Stakeholder Consultation
  • Negotiation and Partnerships
  • Grievance Management
  • Stakeholder Involvement in Project Monitoring
  • Reporting to Stakeholders
  • Management Functions

Materiality is the way of defining the social, governance and environmental topics that matter most to your business and your stakeholders

Materiality assessment is aimed at engaging stakeholders to find out how important specific environmental, social and governance issues are to them. The insights gained can then be used to guide strategy and plan for meaningful stakeholder engagements.

Determining materiality includes considering economic, environmental, and social impacts that cross a threshold in affecting the ability of the affected community or climate. These material topics will often have a significant financial impact on an organization in the near-term or long-term.

Materiality Assessment is a very critical factor in Stakeholder Management process.
