Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues have gained much traction in recent times.
The alarm over a ticking time bomb that is climate change, the need to monitor the impact of business activities on society, and an emphasis on corporate governance factors have caused investors to seek out information that is usually left out of corporate disclosures.
It is this need for information that ESG reporting is meant to serve by employing standards to measure the impact of companies’ activities on their external environment as well as their resilience to risks from the external environment.
Various ESG reporting frameworks have been developed in recent years to meet the demand for high-quality information. One of the more popular frameworks is that built by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). In September 2021, the SASB released an XBRL taxonomy for its metrics.
In this latest IRIS CARBON® webinar, we do a deep dive into the SASB taxonomy and how it facilitates industry-specific disclosures. We will also demonstrate how digital ESG reporting works.
