Introduction to SASB04 June 2018
A webinar to introduce the work of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) to UKSIF members.
Janine Guillot is Director of Capital Markets Policy and Outreach at SASB, which develops industry-specific standards to guide sustainability disclosure by companies to investors. SASB identifies sustainability issues, and related metrics that are reasonably likely to impact financial performance of companies in an industry.
Janine will discuss SASB’s approach to identifying financially material sustainability issues. She will also discuss how investors use the SASB standards in investment decision making across asset classes and geographies.
There will then be opportunity for Q&A, moderated by Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship, Schroders.
