Aligning a company's sustainability needs and its stakeholders' requests: The role of the Materiality Balance Scorecard
As the adverse impacts of tourism on the environment and society continue to attract more attention, organisations are expected to take more responsibility for the sustainable use of resources and their impact on societies. The aim of this PhD is to understand how an organisation can define strategic sustainability objectives to create shared value and in turn translate this into actions, and measure outputs for reports. Therefore, to provide in-depth understanding of the ‘process’ of CSR decision-making and implementation in large hotel groups. It does so by developing the Materiality Balanced Scorecard in the context of the hotel industry, integrating sustainability reporting processes with sustainability performance and management, and using the concepts of shared value, the Balanced Scorecard, the Sustainability Balanced Scorecard, and the stakeholder engagement standard AA100SES.
