This event is open for everyone, including students.

The main objective of this study is to propose a model for environmental assessment based on the materiality principle. To this end, the proposed model integrates information contained in the materiality matrices that firms include in their sustainability reports with expert knowledge, in order to determine the weights than different environmental aspects should have in the environmental assesment of wearing apparel firms.

This research stay is financed by Nils Science and Sustainability Programme (ES07), ABEL – Coordinated Mobility of Researchers (ABEL-CM-2014A), and supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Financial Mechanism. Operated by Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
