Event Details

About the Delta Series

This half-day meeting serves as an intimate forum for discussing the materiality of sustainability issues, and a preview of the accounting standards that will help bring clarity to complying with SEC disclosure requirements. Hear from securities lawyers, accountants, corporations and standards setters working to evolve new methods for the recognition of material sustainability issues and disclosure of decision-useful information to the capital markets.

The event on July 16th will focus on Sustainability Accounting Standards for the Technology and Communications sector, providing a detailed look at the material issues, standards for disclosure, and overall results of the standards setting process. 

The Delta Series:

  • Examines SASB’s new sustainability standards as they emerge from each industry working group.
  • Educates corporate, financial, accounting and sustainability practitioners about what the new standards mean to their industries and how to implement them.
  • Informs investors about how to interpret the standards and how to use them to evaluate potential investments.
  • Inspires attendees about improved transparency, and how it contributes to a future with more efficient capital markets.

With participants from leading corporate, financial, legal and sustainability institutions,  the event aims to uncover strategic sustainability issues for the Technology & Communications sector and contribute to their consideration at the highest strategic and governance levels, by companies, investors and financial analysts.


Following the main event, we will be offering a free workshop to preview the SASB standards for the Technology and Communications sector.  Please visit the workshop registration page for more information and to register for the workshop.
