Terra Alpha is Pleased to Join the SASB Alliance

Press Release

Middleburg, VA — Terra Alpha Investments LLC is pleased to become a member of the SASB Alliance, a group dedicated to promoting standards for disclosure of material sustainability factors for companies and investors. Terra Alpha uses SASB standards to help identify material environmental issues in each sector and select the most Environmentally Productive companies for the global portfolio.

“Our partnership with SASB supports our shared goal of promoting the recognition and disclosure of material environmental data and sustainability factors, and to then use the information to make better investment decisions,” says Tim Dunn, co-founder of Terra Alpha.

“The SASB Foundation is pleased to welcome Terra Alpha as an organizational member of the SASB Alliance, joining the broad base of organizations representing investors, corporations, and market intermediaries,” says Matthew Welch, President of the SASB Foundation. Terra Alpha brings a strong history of support for SASB’s work to the efforts of other Alliance members who are collectively working to promote a market standard for material sustainability information to be used in investment decisions.”

Terra Alpha has been part of the stakeholder consultations for the SASB standards by each industry, and in 2016 contributed a case study to the inaugural edition of SASB ESG Integration Insights illustrating how water is an important factor for companies and investors to consider.
