WORKING AGENDA & ANTICIPATED SPEAKERS / PRESENTERS
This is part 3 of a 3-part series on Implementing SASB.
In my last two posts, I showed that two dissimilar industries may have a similar lack of preparedness to disclose material sustainability-related information to investors.

This is part 2 of a 3-part series on Implementing SASB.
In my last post, I started contrasting and comparing the readiness to follow SASB guidance for two industries: Metals & Mining (M&M) and Apparel, Accessories, & Footwear (AA&F).

The expanded use of each, whether individually or combined, is a positive trend for all stakeholders.
