We are pleased to announce that Cornerstone Capital Group will be participating in the upcoming Sustainability Standards Corporate Roundtable on May 13th, hosted by the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). This collaborative event will engage thought leaders to discuss SASB’s new sustainability standards, best practices for disclosure and methods to help drive investor and corporate value creation.
Last month, Dr. Jean Rogers of the SASB discussed “Design to Serve the Changing Needs of the Reasonable Investor” with our Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking readers. In it she highlights how the reasonable investor of 2014 has grown and changed since decades past. Companies must adapt to this new reality and provide investors comparable environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data in an accessible format to help them benchmark performance. SASB standards—designed for the disclosure of material ESG issues in mandatory SEC filings such as the Form 10-K—cater to this need. Through design, we can usher a new era of transparency in the capital markets.
