Standards Advisory Group

The Standards Advisory Group (SAG) is a standing committee of volunteer industry experts from corporations, financial institutions, and third parties that provide ongoing feedback on the implementation and use of the SASB standards, as well as emerging sustainability issues to be considered as part of the standard-setting process.

Standards Advisory Group Statement

SAG members recognize the need for consistent, comparable and reliable disclosure of material and decision-useful ESG information.

Standards Advisory Group Members:

  • Believe standards can improve the quality and comparability of sustainability-related information
  • Believe SASB’s approach—which is industry-specific and focused on financially material issues—provides investors with relevant and decision-useful information
  • Provide feedback to the SASB staff on the standards development process and the implementation and use of the standards

Standards Advisory Group Members

SAG members bring a diverse set of perspectives and technical insights that support our research across all 11 SASB sectors. Members come from organizations across the globe and engage directly with our technical staff and the SASB Standards Board to discuss key sustainability topics impacting the industries they represent.
