CSRHub is the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board's™ (SASB™) first partner in its newly-launched "Research & Insight Partnership Program." This is the second report in a series that will cover all 79 of SASB’s Sustainable Industry Classification System™ (SICS™) industries — the first was on the Metal & Mining industry and it remain available on the CSRHub site, here. CSRHub’s co-author for the reports has been the well-respected consulting firm, EKOS International.
This new report describes the current state of sustainability reporting for the 280 companies that SASB mapped to the Apparel, Accessories and Footwear industry. It also discusses reporting trends in general for this industry and includes information on another 61 of the industry’s companies who are not covered by SICS.
The 60 page report may be purchased from the CSRHub web site. You can see the table of contents and the first few pages of the report here.
