About SASB & The SASB Foundation

SASB’s mission is to help businesses around the world identify, manage and report on the sustainability topics that matter most to their investors. SASB is changing the way investors, corporations and the public think about financially material sustainability factors. With SASB standards, companies can benefit from greater transparency, better risk management, and improved long-term performance while providing investors a more accurate picture of their sustainability performance.

The SASB Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit responsible for the funding and oversight of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). The SASB Foundation supports the work of SASB and provides education and resources that advance the use of SASB standards and the field of sustainability accounting.

We are a dynamic, fast-growing organization that has raised over $40 million in funding, garnered over 11,500 media mentions, and released sustainability accounting standards that have been downloaded over 180,000 times. We develop products, resources and education programs to support the adoption and use of our sustainability accounting standards and are funded by a mix of earned income and grants. We have a talented staff and executive team, with our work overseen by two high-profile boards, drawing members from the FASB, the SEC and the Big 4 accounting firms, major asset owners and asset managers, companies, and academia. Our work is supported by major institutions and forward-thinking individuals, including Chairman Emeritus Michael Bloomberg.

Job Summary

You will be responsible for managing SASB’s CRM platforms. These systems are core to what we do here at SASB. We take our customer data and content very seriously. As a standards-setting organization at the intersection of investors, corporations, and market intermediaries (tools providers, accountants, lawyers, and regulators), SASB works with all organizations in the capital markets to create standardized data for industry-specific sustainability factors.

You are a roll-up-the-sleeves kind of person that is serious about ensuring systems are designed to help people find information faster and provide improved insights. You like jumping in and proposing solutions when you see a problem. Salesforce administration by walking around (SABWA) is a natural habit and getting more people using Salesforce is something that you enjoy. You are systems and process-oriented and love integrating systems together to make processes better.

If you are passionate about sustainability and have a strong desire to make a difference in the world of sustainability disclosures, we want to hear from you.
