In November 2020, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) announced that they extended the deadline of the Conceptual Framework and Rules of Procedure public comment period from November 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020.

In late August, the SASB released two key governance documents, the Conceptual Framework and Rules of Procedure. Since late August, there have been substantial developments in the sustainability disclosure space. Among these developments is the IFRS Foundation’s consultation period, which also closes on December 31, 2020. A blog summarizing SASB’s perspective on the IFRS consultation period can be found here.

As a reminder, both the Conceptual Framework and Rules of Procedure exposure drafts can be found here.  All comment letters should be submitted to SASB’s Public Comment Portal or emailed to by December 31, 2020, and all comments submitted will be on the public record and posted on the SASB website. While the SASB Standards Board may not provide specific responses to each public comment, the Standards Board will acknowledge receipt of, review, and summarize all public comments received.
