SASB commissions research on the economic impacts of its standards

The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) has commissioned an independent analysis to understand the potential costs and benefits of implementing SASB’s standards for listed USA companies.

The research will focus on three areas: potential consequences in the capital markets of widespread adoption of SASB standards, costs of disclosure and litigation risks for companies, and finally, the potential implementation issues.

The academic research team conducting the analysis comprises of professors Christian Leuz and Hans Christensen from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business; and Luzi Hail from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. They are expected to deliver their findings by January 2018.
