SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Mar. 25 /CSRwire/ - Today, sustainability reporting lacks comparability, rigor, and implications for financial valuation. As such, sustainability reporting can’t be tied to performance in a way that is actionable by management or investors. There is a need for standards that help companies address, and investors analyze, the most material environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in their industry.

Join CSRwire and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) for a webinar and Tweetchat to discuss what materiality means for sustainability. Learn about SASB’s work to develop industry-specific sustainability accounting standards and how these standards will affect your industry and organization. This will also be a great opportunity to have your questions answered about the future of ESG disclosure and learn how to become involved in the standards-setting process.

Date: April 18, 2013
