In today’s world, businesses face a unique set of challenges to their long-term sustainability, from climate change and resource constraints to urbanization and technological innovation. And investors increasingly want to know how these issues impact corporate value creation.
With SASB standards, companies can benefit from greater transparency, better risk management, improved long-term performance and stronger, more valuable brands — while providing investors a more accurate picture of their sustainability performance.
SASB standards and tools are helping companies …
- identify the handful of ESG and sustainability topics that most directly impact their long-term value creation
- implement principles-based reporting frameworks including Integrated Reporting and the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
- communicate sustainability data more efficiently and effectively to investors
SASB can be a core part of any reporting system. Whether used alone, alongside other reporting frameworks or as part of an integrated report, SASB standards and metrics enable companies to communicate with investors in a detailed, powerful way.
