Meet A Few Of Our Supporters
Bruno Bertocci, Managing Director, UBS
“One of the most exciting developments in sustainable investing has been the upgrade in the quality of company data that identifies companies with strong strategies.

Sophia Mendelsohn, Head of Sustainability, JetBlue
JetBlue started reporting with SASB Standards in 2017 as a new way to meet their investors’ needs. As Sophia Mendelsohn, Head of Sustainability puts it: “The SASB standard for the airline industry offered a reporting solution for us, as it allowed us to better target investors by focusing on the ESG metrics material to our industry, rather than reporting on broad metrics that are less applicable to aviation.”
Peter Beer, Vice President, Payden & Rygel
“The fellowship and open dialogue with SASB Alliance members has provided Payden & Rygel the rare opportunity to collaborate with corporate issuers, asset owners, and other asset managers to reimagine the future of financial reporting on environmental, social, and governance issues.”
