“Human Capital” Disclosure: SASB Sums Up Its Resources
Yesterday, SASB published this 10-page “Human Capital Bulletin” — which summarizes elements of SASB standards that can help companies prepare human capital disclosure as required by the recent amendments to Reg S-K. Here’s what it includes:
A list of SASB industry standards that contain topics and metrics related to human capital.
An overview of selected human capital-related topics and metrics across all 77 SASB industry standards – specifically, standards on labor practices; employee health & safety; employee engagement, diversity & inclusion; and supply chain management
A summary of SASB’s Human Capital Management Research Project, which has the objective of identifying opportunities for the SASB Standards to further account for human capital-related risks and opportunities
The new Human Capital Bulletin follows updates last week to this statement from the SASB Investor Advisory Group. The statement — which hadn’t been updated since the Investor Advisory Group was formed in 2016 — urges companies to include SASB-based disclosures in their ESG communications to investors and now emphasizes that other reporting standards and frameworks may complement SASB standards, but aren’t replacements for them. Also see this SASB press release.
