Overview


Gregg Anderson, CIA, CRMA, Managing Director at Crowe, discusses SASB’s role in connecting companies and investors with reliable and comparable data.                                                          

“First of all, I think investors want to understand how companies are managing their ESG risks and opportunities. One of the best ways a company can do this, is to demonstrate that they have meaningful and reliable ESG data that is useful to manage the business. SASB has already worked with the investor community to identify the ESG topics that are meaningful for 77 distinct industries. On average, each industry standard has just five disclosure topics.  SASB puts a spotlight on these topics.”
