Sustainability reporting gets a new set of standards

Dec 18, 2018

On December 18, 2018, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an interview written and compiled by Deloitte. In the interview, Kristen Sullivan, an Audit & Assurance partner with Deloitte & Touche LLP and Sustainability Risk and KPI Services leader, spoke with Robert Herz, who sits on the SASB Foundation Board and is a former chair of the Financial Accounting Standards Board.

For years, sustainability reporting has been criticized for not having the rigor of traditional financial reporting. Newly minted standards from the SASB may change that view.

In the interview, they discussed Herz’s long-time interest in sustainability reporting, why more companies may be ready to embrace the voluntary standards, and questions management can expect from their board about sustainability reporting, among other topics.

Review the full interview on the Deloitte WSJ's website.
