Examples of SASB’s Industry-Specific Approach

Not all sustainability issues matter equally to each industry, and the same sustainability issue can manifest differently across industries. That is why SASB has Standards for 77 industries that identify the subset of environmental, social, and governance issues most relevant to financial performance in each industry. Industry-specific disclosure reduces costs and minimizes noise by surfacing the most relevant information. Peruse the below gallery to see illustrations of SASB Standards for a select industries.
