There has been a growing focus on sustainable business practices and transparent ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) reporting. While sustainability reporting is not mandatory in all jurisdictions, a growing number of successful organisations appreciate that adopting best practice can be a significant business differentiator. Additionally, a growing number of lenders and investors have incorporated Sustainability related pre-requisites on corporations who require funding.

As ESG reporting is not mandatory in Singapore except for companies listed on the Singapore Exchange, companies across different industries disclose disparate metrics relating to their sustainability performance. This has led to a persistent and key challenge surrounding sustainable investing: a perceived lack of trust in the reliability of this data. There is thus a need to improve both the quality and reliability of ESG disclosure.

Key Topics

• Understand the importance of sustainable practices
• Understand the reporting standards including GRI Standards, UNSDGs, and Singapore Exchange requirements
• Learn how to identify risk – based material issues for companies
• Practice application of concepts and standards by critiquing and recommending improvement for actual ESG reports
