SASB Board Meetings
On June 29th and 30th the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) convened to review items under consideration for the SASB’s Technical Agenda. The board discussion encompassed items under review for possible changes to the Provisional Standards for 79 industries in 11 major sectors within the Sustainability Industry Classification System, prior to finalization in Q1 2018. The 2017 Technical Agenda noting items under formal review by the Standards Board will be published in July 2017.
A Research Agenda will also be developed, encompassing items that are being evaluated by the staff but are not yet ready for the Technical Agenda. Items on the Research Agenda will remain there until they either advance to the Technical Agenda (through research and consultation) or are dropped due to lack of evidence. Items that are currently being considered for the Technical Agenda have arisen from analyst research and stakeholder consultation conducted since release of the Provisional Standards.
