Materiality Assessment

The International School of Beijing (ISB) is embarking on a process to create a roadmap what what sustainability (defined as People - Planet - Purpose for ISB) should look and feel like at ISB. Throughout the process we will be looking for participation from a wide range of stakeholders to create this vision, including students, staff, alumni, administration, our partners, and external organizations.

We are currently working to further understand what issues are most important to ISB as we see them, but also as others see them. This understanding will assist us in prioritizing the most important issues to drive our roadmap.
