Public Comments on the Exposure Draft Standards
October 2, 2017–January 31, 2018
During SASB’s most recent public comment period, we received 120 letters from 97 unique commenters. Comments were submitted from companies, investors, industry associations, and others across all 11 sectors. Comments were constructive in nature, generally reflecting a high level of detail and attention to financially material sustainability issues. Two thirds of comment letters were industry specific. Industry associations represented our largest group of commenters, a positive sign given the breadth of companies represented by these organizations. Each of these comment letters are posted on this page, by date received.
Public feedback is an integral part of our rigorous, transparent standards development process. It ensures that the standards we create for the market reflect the needs of companies, investors, and ultimately the broad economy. Read more about our process and what’s happening between now and when the codified standards are launched in mid-2018.
