Bloomberg L.P. shares key takeaways from its implementation of SASB standards.
Bloomberg L.P. was the first company to disclose sustainability data using the provisional SASB standards. As a private company, Bloomberg has no public shareholders but chose to report SASB standards as a means to increase transparency and encourage other companies to do the same. As part of its 2014 Impact Report, Bloomberg reported SASB metrics for the Technology & Communications and Services sectors it considered material to its business.
