SASB Standards identify the subset of sustainability issues most relevant to financial performance in each of 77 industries.
SASB Standards were developed based on extensive feedback from companies, investors, and other market participants as part of a transparent, publicly-documented process.
Not all sustainability issues matter equally to each industry, and the same sustainability issue can manifest differently across industries—that's why SASB Standards are industry-based.

Our mission is to safeguard and build wealth for future generations. As a long-term, universal investor, we have an interest in sustainable development. We urge (the supply of) standardized, concrete and relevant sustainability data and we ask companies to go from words to numbers – because what gets measured gets managed.
Many of our largest investors strongly encouraged us to use the SASB framework as the preferred way to provide them with the most decision-useful Verizon ESG information.
SASB helped us focus more specifically on investors as a key stakeholder audience for our sustainability disclosures.
