The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) chair Jean Rogers has joined the board of the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) highlighting the two organisations help organization disclose material and decision-useful information to investors and to make corporate climate and environmental reporting mainstream.

CDSB managing director Mardi McBrien said: “Some of the latest developments in the corporate reporting world, including the work of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, have made it clear that companies and investors need greater alignment and clarity in the reporting landscape to ensure decision-useful disclosure of sustainability information becomes easier and is scaled up. We look forward to collaborating with SASB and all the other organizations on our Board to make better quality environmental reporting widespread and mainstream.”

Rogers commented that this was an excellent next step in the longstanding collaboration between the two organisations.

SASB and CDSB also announced that they would release in the coming months a joint paper to further highlight the areas in which they would collaborate.
