The new online Materiality Assessment survey asks you to provide your views on significant topics pertaining to the global bank's financial, economic, social and environmental performance. The Materiality Assessment is a tool based on the Global Reporting Initiative that collates and assesses all topics of relevance to the corporation and its stakeholders. The results will be displayed in the form of a materiality matrix and will clearly delineate the topics of importance to you and all other stakeholders.

The short survey will take you not more than approximately two minutes to fill out. It will ask you to rate, in terms of relevance to you, a wide variety of critical subjects ranging from human rights and the environment to outsourcing and financial stability. The survey will be available until the end of the year. 

"Over the years, UBS has taken on many important tasks with major societal relevance. These are both linked to our interactions with clients as well as to our own operations. Understanding the evolving expectations and concerns of our stakeholders is key to this undertaking. Therefore, we introduced a Materiality Assessment in 2012 to establish a systematic approach to this task. This new survey on our corporate responsibility website is designed to capture the views of as many of our stakeholders as possible."
