For decades, investor decision-making has been governed by information in financial statements. But the world is now a very different place—facing megatrends such as population growth, food scarcity, climate change, and resource constraints—and financial accounting alone can no longer capture the complete picture of a company’s value. In today’s world, how effectively a company addresses sustainability issues can impact its financial position and future prospects. Yet despite increasing investor demand for comparable sustainability information, corporate reporting today fails to systematically account for changes in non-financial value drivers that investors need to make decisions. The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) arose to fill a market need for comparable, standardized information on these increasingly significant sustainability factors. During this program, learn how SASB standards help companies improve performance on key sustainability issues and meet disclosure requirements and requests. See how SASB standards helps investors identify risks/opportunities in their portfolios and benchmark companies in a given industry. Understand where the evolution of corporation sustainability disclosure is heading and prepare yourself to adapt accordingly.
•Clarify the legal basis for the disclosure of material sustainability information
•Describe rising investor demand for material sustainability information
•Provide an overview of SASB’s mission and standards development process
•Explain how companies, investors, accountants, and lawyers can use SASB standards
•Discuss SASB’s current status and market adoption initiatives
