Membership Benefits

The SASB Alliance is a program of the Value Reporting Foundation. The SASB Alliance is focused on providing education and resources related to the SASB Standards, one of the three resources offered by the Value Reporting Foundation. The Value Reporting Foundation is a global nonprofit organization that offers a comprehensive suite of resources designed to help businesses and investors develop a shared understanding of enterprise value—how it is created, preserved and eroded.


Designed for asset managers, asset owners, companies, and service providers, SASB Alliance Organizations gain a unique opportunity to learn from both the Value Reporting Foundation 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.

What is required to be a SASB Alliance Organizational Member?

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.

Do companies have to report with the SASB standards?

Companies do not have to be currently reporting or disclosing with the SASB Standards 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.

Are all SASB Alliance Organizations listed on the SASB website?

Nearly all members are listed on the website, with a few exceptions for organizations that choose to remain anonymous publicly.

What is the difference between SASB Standards Investor Advisory Group (IAG) and the SASB Alliance?

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.

Can non-members provide feedback on SASB Standards?

Yes. The Value Reporting Foundation and SASB Standards have 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.

How is the SASB Alliance connected with SASB’s standard-setting work?

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.
