Sep 30, 2013

The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) has launched a corporate pilot program to help companies use SASB standards to disclose material environmental, social, and governance issues in their annual filings to the SEC.

The pilot program is open to publicly listed U.S. corporations that operate in the health care and financial sectors. Ten companies will be selected to participate in the pilot program, which will begin in the first quarter of 2014. Over the next three years, SASB anticipates that it will run pilot programs for a total of 10 sectors.

Companies will come away with an appreciation for the legal framework governing Form 10-K disclosures, an understanding of their current quality of disclosure and readiness to report, and the ability to recognize and disclose material sustainability factors using SASB industry standards.
