SASB Foundation launches membership programme with educational purposes

The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Foundation has launched the SASB Alliance, a membership programme offering education and resources to help individuals and organisations in the practice of sustainability accounting and disclosure.

The SASB Alliance offers two levels of membership: one for organisations and one for individuals. The organisational membership is designed for asset managers, asset owners, issuers, and service providers (i.e. consulting and law firms). The individual membership is designed for professionals from all functions of the capital markets such as finance, investment, sustainability, assurance, and law.

Matthew Welch, president of the SASB Foundation said: "Over the last few months, we had conversations with several [stakeholders] to explore interest in a membership program. Several organizations stepped up to become members even prior to the public launch. We are proud to begin the SASB Alliance with 18 organisational members, a number we expect to grow dramatically over time."

The first 18 members of the SASB Alliance are: Bloomberg, Blue Harbour Group, Brand Intelligence Solutions, Breckinridge Capital Advisors, CalPERS, CalSTRS, Calvert Research and Management, CBRE, Domini Impact Investments, Equilibrium Capital, Heron Foundation, Macquarie Investment Management, Neuberger Berman, NRG Energy, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, Protiviti, TIAA Investments (an affiliate of Nuveen), and UBS Asset Management.
