What is SASB?
The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) was founded in 2011 as an independent organisation that develops and publishes industry-specific sustainability accounting standards. The SASB Standards provide guidance for companies to disclose financial material sustainability information to investors in a standardised, decision-useful format.
The SASB Standards cover a wide range of sustainability topics, including climate change, human rights, labour practices and product safety. They are designed to be industry-specific, taking into account the unique sustainability risks and opportunities of different industries. Companies worldwide use SASB Standards for their annual reports, financial filings, company websites, sustainability reports and more.
A 2021 merger between SASB and the International Integrated Reporting Council formed the Value Reporting Foundation (VRF). In 2022, the IFRS Foundation subsequently integrated the VRF and Climate Disclosure Standards Board with its own newly formed International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), which took over responsibility for the SASB Standards. The ISSB has committed to maintaining and developing the SASB Standards and leveraging the industry-based approach to standards development.
How is the SASB Marine Transportation Standard used?
The SASB Standard provides an industry-specific framework for companies in the marine transportation industry to disclose financial material sustainability information to investors in a standardised format. By using the SASB standard, companies can provide more comprehensive and comparable information on their sustainability performance, which can help investors make more informed investment decisions.
The SASB Marine Transportation Standard is specifically tailored to the sustainability risks and opportunities that are unique to the marine transportation industry. It covers a wide range of topics, including greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, water quality, safety and labour practices. By providing guidance on what information to disclose and how to disclose it, the SASB Standard can help companies better manage their sustainability risks and opportunities, and improve their overall sustainability performance.
