The SASB Alliance

Expectations from a wide range of corporate stakeholders for more detailed reporting on sustainability have yielded high rates of such reporting. Today, expectations of a wide range of investors for higher quality sustainability data is also growing, resulting in a need for tools through which companies can better translate their work on sustainability into a language and format more usable to investors across asset classes and strategies.
