SASB Standards put companies in prime position for ISSB adoption

The IFRS Foundation’s International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) encourages companies to keep using the SASB Standards

SASB Standards identify the subset of sustainability issues most relevant to financial performance in each of 77 industries.
SASB Standards were developed based on extensive feedback from companies, investors, and other market participants as part of a transparent, publicly-documented process.
Industry-based disclosures are decision-useful for investors and cost-effective for companies to provide.

Our mission is to safeguard and build wealth for future generations. As a long-term, universal investor, we have an interest in sustainable development. We urge (the supply of) standardised, concrete and relevant sustainability data and we ask companies to go from words to numbers – because what gets measured gets managed.
