Coming together to adapt to changing expectations and move the markets
Join the SASB Alliance membership program to develop and explore best practices to integrate material sustainability information into existing processes. Organizations and individuals benefit from the SASB Alliance with educational materials, unique resources, and product discounts. Members share the belief that today’s capital markets need standardized sustainability disclosure and effective ESG integration into investment practices – for the benefit of both companies and investors.
We are an ambitious organization that is quickly gaining momentum—join this growing movement today.
The SASB Alliance is a program of the SASB Foundation, the organization that funds SASB’s standard-setting work. The SASB Foundation provides education and resources that help people and organizations apply the standards to their own work.
Designed for asset managers, asset owners, companies, and service providers, SASB Alliance Organizations gain a unique opportunity to learn from both SASB and one another about the financial impact of ESG issues and how organizations are responding. Through exclusive convenings and member dialogues, we will support members as they aim to build capacity among their staff, identify best practices, and explore the use of material sustainability information.See Current Members

There are no formal reporting requirements or official time commitments required to be a member of the SASB Alliance. The Alliance is designed to be a resource to organizations and individuals, and we believe you get out what you put in. That said, we do seek an intentional and demonstrated commitment to learn and build financially material ESG considerations into decision making to join the Alliance.
Companies do not have to be currently reporting or disclosing SASB level detail to join the SASB Alliance. Many companies have expressed interest in the Alliance as a way to learn more about the standards and their use in the market to aid in their efforts to build out those capabilities internally.
Nearly all members are listed on the website, with a few exceptions for organizations that choose to remain anonymous publicly.
The SASB Standards Investor Advisory Group is an invite-only cohort within the SASB Alliance that has committed to advocate and engage with companies on the disclosure and adoption of the SASB standards. All SASB Standards IAG members are Alliance members, but not all Alliance members are SASB Standards IAG Members.
Yes. SASB has a market driven approach to the development and ongoing maintenance and refinement of the Standards. We encourage feedback and are happy to direct Non-Alliance Members to the right internal resource to share their feedback.
The SASB Standards and the process for maintaining them are completely independent of the SASB Alliance. Alliance members are encouraged, like any other organization, to participate in standards setting.
