Established in 2011, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) is an independent, private-sector standards setting organization based in San Francisco dedicated to enhancing the efficiency of the capital markets by fostering high-quality disclosure of material sustainability information that meets investor needs. The SASB develops and maintains sustainability accounting standards—for 79 industries in 11 sectors—that help public corporations disclose financially material information to investors in a cost-effective and decision-useful format. The SASB’s transparent, inclusive, and rigorous standards-setting process is materiality focused, evidence-based and market informed. SASB’s Alliance Members share the belief that today’s capital markets need standardized sustainability disclosure and effective ESG integration into investment practices – for the benefit of both companies and investors. This webinar will introduce the SASB conceptual framework and explain the ongoing SASB process, as well as suggestions for educators seeking to introduce sustainability standards in their courses.

In doing so, he oversees SASB’s membership, conference, and education programs as well as licensing and the SASB Navigator. Nicolai has delivered invited presentations on SASB material to university-level classes. Before joining SASB in 2013, Nicolai had business development and operations roles in the private sector and higher education. He holds a BA from Emory University.
