We are delighted to welcome Dr. Jean Rogers, Founder and Chair of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), to the Social Innovation Studio. SASB is dedicated to enhancing the efficiency of capital markets in the US by fostering high quality disclosure of material sustainability information that meets investor needs and enhances public trust in companies. The concept for SASB was conceived during research conducted from 2006-2010 at the Initiative for Responsible Investment at Harvard Kennedy School, and evolved under Jean’s leadership from self-funded start-up to globally-respected organization. This roundtable will be moderated by David Wood, Director of the Initiative for Responsible Investment, and light refreshments will be provided.
