No, a company does not need to join the SASB Alliance or pay any other fee to disclose information using SASB Standards. SASB is a nonprofit organization established to connect businesses and investors on the financial impacts of sustainability. All 77 industry-specific SASB Standards are available to download free of charge on the SASB website for non-commercial use, such as disclosure to investors or for use in academic research.
However, we also have programs for commercial uses of the Standards, such as integrating them into investment strategies or reporting software. These fee-based programs help ensure that the businesses that benefit from the Standards help facilitate their maintenance through financial support of SASB. For more information, please see Licensing Use.
