Tears Don't Mend Broken China

Blog

By: Bahar Gidwani

I’ve always been clumsy.  There were many broken dishes and glasses in my childhood.  My Mom was always kind about it.  She’d say, “Tears don’t mend broken China.”  She had other similar phrases I remember (e.g., “If you get a load of lemons, it is time to make lemonade!”), but the lesson was always Midwestern positivism.  Don’t sit around moaning about what can’t be fixed—keep moving forward and don’t let your own failures hold you back.

This is part 3 of a 3-part series on Implementing SASB.
 

In my last two posts, I showed that two dissimilar industries may have a similar lack of preparedness to disclose material sustainability-related information to investors.  In order to conform to the guidance set out in SASB’s standards, the Metals & Mining (M&M) and Apparel, Accessories, & Footwear (AA&F) will need to collect large quantities of new data or reshape existing data streams.

Implementing SASB – Aspirational Goals

This is part 2 of a 3-part series on Implementing SASB.

In my last post, I started contrasting and comparing the readiness to follow SASB guidance for two industries: Metals & Mining (M&M) and Apparel, Accessories, & Footwear (AA&F).  Based on the higher rate of reporting in AA&F, we would consider that industry more highly “evolved” as far as sustainability reporting, than M&M.
