Brief overview of the development of the new Sustainability Accounting Standards, which will provide investors and researchers a means to compare environmental, social and governance issues of public companies in 10 industry sectors, while enabling the companies a means to disclose and manage their sustainability issues.

These are being developed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) for more than 80 industries and will be ready by 2016. These will be designed for use by U.S. publicly listed corporations and complement financial reporting accounting standards information in mandated SEC filings.

  2. Participants will learn about standardized metrics being developed to help students, researchers and investors have consistent and comparable information on companies’ environmental, social and governance performance, which is of increasing global interest to stakeholders.
