Oct 05, 2012

The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) was formally announced on October 4, 2012. The organization was formed to establish an understanding of material sustainability issues facing industries and to create sustainability accounting standards suitable for disclosure in standard filings, such as the Form 10-K and 20-F.

The SASB plans to incorporate its standards into the SEC rules for all publicly held companies, governing the specific kinds of sustainability information companies must disclose and how to disclose it.
