What Is SASB and Why Should You Care?
Environmental, social, and governance matters all contribute to form an organization's sustainability reporting. This area of SEC disclosure and corporate reporting is increasing in interest and demand. Employees, supply chain partners, and investors are all interested in the additional color that this reporting provides.
Bob Hirth, Evan Harvey, via teleconference faciliated by John Stout, Debbie Walker Kool, and moderator, Miron Marcotte, explored the following questions:
- What is the Sustainability Accounts Standard Board (SASB), how was it formed, and what are its mission and activities?
- Why are institutional investors interested in and, in some cases, demanding these additional disclosures?
- What does the SEC already require in terms of sustainability reporting?
- How are the SASB suggested disclosures developed by industry and what are they?
- What is the current state of sustainability reporting within and outside of Form 10-K?
- Why might you consider this reporting and activity to enhance the value of your organization?
- How are non-public companies approaching sustainability and reporting, and what benefits are they seeing?
- What questions about sustainability should directors be asking in 2018?
