As a SASB Materiality Map® and full standards licensee, Greenstone enables its software clients to use the SASB framework when reporting on their Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) impacts and risks.
What is SASB?
The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) is an independent, non-profit organisation that aims to develop and disseminate sustainability accounting standards to help US publicly-listed corporations disclose material information on how they impact value. The SASB Standards are comprised of disclosure guidance and an accounting standard on potential sustainability topics that corporations may find material in their industry.
The SASB Standards enable businesses around the world to identify, manage and communicate financially material sustainability information to their investors. SASB has developed a set of 77 industry standards, which provide globally applicable industry-specific topics and their associated metrics for the typical company in an industry. SASB has also developed the Materiality Map® an interactive tool that identifies and compares disclosure topics across different industries and sectors.
Greenstone & SASB reporting software
Greenstone has integrated the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standards into its award-winning sustainability and ESG software solutions. In partnership with SASB reporting software, Greenstone licenses the SASB metrics, topics and technical protocols to enable its clients to use the SASB framework when reporting on their ESG impacts and risks.
Through its award-winning Frameworks module, part of Greenstone’s sustainability software solution, clients can streamline data collection to meet the reporting requirements of multiple global reporting frameworks. These include SASB, the GRI Standards, CDP, UNGC, TCFD, the SDGs and many leading financial exchange-reporting schemes around the world.
Being a SASB licensee strengthens Greenstone’s position as a global leader in ESG reporting software. As a Gold CDP Accredited Solution Provider and a certified provider under the GRI Certified Software & Tools Programme, this SASB Materiality Map® and full standards license adds a third formal linkage and content programme to Greenstone’s industry accreditations.
