No. SASB is an independent standard-setting organization and does not rate, rank, or evaluate the sustainability performance of companies.
SASB Standards help investors by fostering company disclosures of sustainability data that is comparable, consistent, and material to enterprise value creation. With better data, investors can better evaluate companies’ performance to inform investment and voting decisions. That said, many ratings providers and investors license SASB Standards for use in their proprietary ESG scoring tools and assessment methodologies. A full list of organizations is listed on the SASB website, with several of investor case studies highlighted in SASB’s ESG Integration Insights series.
