The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) is a nonprofit focused on helping companies identify and publicly disclose the financially material sustainability topics that matter most to their investors. SASB has developed industry-specific reporting recommendations, including accounting and activity metrics, to guide businesses’ public reporting. 

This SASB report includes our responses to SASB’s reporting recommendations for Professional Commercial Services, Nielsen’s industry classification according to SASB’s Sustainable Industry Classification System®. SASB has identified three topics as most material to our industry—data security, workforce diversity and engagement and professional integrity—as well as specific quantitative and qualitative indicators for each topic. We report detailed information on all of these topics in the Data Privacy and Security, Diversity and Inclusion, Human Capital and Governance sections of this Global Responsibility Report, and on SASB’s specific indicators in the table below.
